October at The Big E

Cool weather settles on the fairgrounds and while The Big E is over, Eastern States Exposition is still busy with a full calendar of year-round events.

In the Marketing office, end of The Big E traditions need to be wrapped up. In early October, the department hosts a “Thank-you” party where employees are invited to a relaxing evening of great food, beverages and dancing. Much planning went into the party and this year’s event was a great success; people stayed after the music ended and the lights were turned up.

Elsewhere on the grounds, Storrowton Village Museum welcomes school groups as they take a trip to our past. The Museum offers field trips where can experience, learn and enjoy the simplicity of life in by-gone days.

Currently, near the Coliseum, beautiful horses trot in the warm-up ring preparing for the New England Equitation Championships that will begin tomorrow. The show will take place in the Coliseum from 8:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. October 16-19. Throughout the rest of the month, three dog shows, the New England Snowmobile Expo and Power Sport Show and Storrowton’s Tales of Haunted New England will take place on the grounds. November will start a whole new set of events highlighted by the Ideas for Living Home Show and Equine Affaire® as the grounds are never simply empty.
