Dive right into fair's opening week events


Martin performs as an acoustic duo with Michael Kelly and will appear at the picnic area stage on Saturday, Oct. 5, from 4 to 6:30 p.m.

Money Pole

Some people invest in the stock market. Others try to climb the Money Pole in the fair’s Essex County Farmyard.

The 20-foot pole is not greased, but you’d be surprised how hard it is to get a grip on its stainless-steel surface, especially if it rains.

The $10 you win for reaching the top may not help with the mortgage, but there is real satisfaction in making it to the top.

There is no age limit for the contest, which will be held Friday at 4 and 6 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday at 11 a.m., 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.

The Topsfield Fair opens Friday, Oct. 4.
