About The Big E
The Vermont Building at the Eastern States Exposition ("The Big E") showcases the authenticity, quality, and spirit of Vermont. Each year, companies from across Vermont head down to West Springfield to share their products with fair-goers who appreciate the high-quality products on sale in the Vermont Building. For 17 days each September, the building is a feast for the senses, from the sweet smell of hot cider donuts to the warm comfy texture of authentic Vermont flannel. The dates for the 2018 fair are Sept. 14 – Sept. 30.
The Vermont Building provides companies with the unique opportunity to share their products with an audience of more than 1 million people who eager to experience the quality of Vermont. Companies and organizations interested in participating in the Vermont Building must submit a proposal to the Agency of Agriculture, Food, and Markets, to be reviewed by the selection committee.
