Every year the streets of New Holland close to traffic and the center of town transforms into a celebration of farm and community. The crisp autumn air is sweetened with funnel cake, hot cinnamon rolls, and cotton candy. Laughter rings out and dazzling lights shine on the midway filled with thrilling rides and games of chance. The 4-day event kicks off with the Spectacle of Bands Parade Wednesday evening at 7 pm where excitement and attendance is at its peak. The entire 2-mile route is flooded with spectators and is quite a sight to see. There is something for everyone throughout the week including an FFA tractor driving contest and a swine and sheep show and sale at the New Holland Sales Stables. The tug of war and pedal power take place on Franklin Street. A bake sale and kid's day are held in the ambulance parking lot. Saturday starts off with a horseshoe-pitching contest at the park and continues with a pet parade and baby parade on Main Street. In addition, there are a whole host of exhibits to enjoy. The New Holland Farmers Fair, known to many as "Farm Show", has been around for over 75 years and has a very rich and colorful history.
