The Eastern States Exposition (“Big E”) is an annual 17-day event held in West Springfield, Massachusetts. The Big E is the fourth largest fair in the United States, attracting over 1.6 million attendees in 2022. This year’s Big E will be held from September 15 through October 1, 2023. The Massachusetts Building, located on the Avenue of States, is one of the Big E’s premier attractions and provides Commonwealth businesses, non-profits, and other entities an opportunity to showcase their products and services.
Massachusetts Day (“Event”): Thursday, September 21, 2023, from 10:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M.
The focus of this day is to provide a family-friendly, fun environment with games, giveaways and entertainment that showcases the very best of Massachusetts culture, agriculture, and tourism. Different from previous years, we will not be accepting exhibitors that are selling food items, goods and merchandise. We are looking for tourist attractions, agricultural commodity groups, non-profit and other organizations that would showcase Massachusetts culture, agriculture, and tourism and that will set up a booth to engage attendees with games, giveaways, and entertainment. The sale of merchandise and goods will not be permitted. If you have any questions, please reach out to Katie Rozenas-Hanson, at Katelyn.Rozenas@mass.gov.
