There's no better place to enjoy the sights, sounds and flavors of the fall season in New England than at The Big E. It's quite an extravaganza with free top name entertainment, major exhibits, The Big E Super Circus, the Avenue of States, dazzling thrill shows, New England history and agriculture, animals, rides, shopping, crafts, a daily parade and a Mardi Gras parade and foods from around the world for 17 glorious days during New England's most colorful season.

At its core is the engaging Avenue of States, an educational thoroughfare featuring replicas of all six New England statehouses. This inventive feature allows guests to take a walking tour of New England without leaving the fairgrounds, indulging in sights, sounds and tastes ranging from tart New Hampshire cider to sharp Vermont cheddar.

Complementing this regional immersion course are satellite attractions like the Harvest New England Demonstration Kitchen, where celebrity chefs will preside over a full schedule of cooking demonstrations, food samplings and recipe contests.

For those whose loyalties lie further south, the expo offers daily Mardi Gras parades, transporting contemporary Puritans to the Big Easy through exposure to seven extravagant floats.
