The 2021 Big E & Connecticut Day Events
September 17 - October 3
The 2021 Big E in Springfield, Massachusetts will be held September 17th – October 3rd, 2021. Eastern States Exposition (ESE) is thrilled to announce that The Big E is Back!
“Big is Back” is the theme of this year’s Fair. Currently the fifth largest fair in North America, The Big E will debut some BIG surprises this year including The Super Wheel, a 150 ft. high Ferris wheel with 36 climate-controlled gondolas that seat up to six people. It will be located between the Better Living Center and the Gate 5 entrance.
The Big E is so much more than just a fair, it is tradition, it is celebration, it is the showcase of everything we are so proud of in New England.
Music fans will enjoy top-name concerts at The Big E Arena, sponsored by Truly Hard Seltzer. Guests will be able to visit the Avenue of States, Storrowton Village Museum, shop, eat iconic fair foods, watch the new Big Parade, ride the rides and much more.
Look to our website and social media for announcements as information becomes available. Advance discount tickets to the 2021 Big E are on sale now at TheBigE.com or at The Big E Box Office.
