Goshen first held its agricultural fair in 1910 to showcase the agricultural heritage of Connecticut. Residents organized races, crop and livestock competitions, contests for wood chopping, and crochet. In the 1980s, the Connecticut State Grange awarded Goshen the Connecticut Agricultural Fair, making it the most important event in the state. It kept this status till 2006. Goshen Fair is still one of the oldest and most significant in the state, transforming into a more modern kind of fair and introducing new features like a monster truck show, fireworks, an adult spelling bee, and a skillet throwing contest.
