Rochester Country Fair Fundraiser

On Sunday, April 28, with a May 5 rain date, the Rochester Country Fair Committee will be holding Ferrous and Non-Ferrous Metal Recycling & NEATTA Tractor Show, Pull and Swap Meet.

Get ready for spring and help support the Rochester Country Fair by donating your unwanted ferrous and non-ferrous metals to the Rochester Country Fair! Donations of scrap metal items can be dropped off at the Fairgrounds, located at 65 Pine Street, on Sunday, April 28 between the hours of 9:00 am and 4:00 pm.

Scrap metal collected will help support the Rochester Country Fair as we continue to make improvements to the fairgrounds and bring new and exciting events to the Fair. So get ready for spring by cleaning up some unwanted recyclable items in your yard while supporting your local fair.

A list of acceptable items includes ferrous and non-ferrous items: steel, washers & dryers, grills (without propane tanks), cast iron, hot water heaters, copper, engines, rims (without tires), aluminum, mixed steel items, transmissions, metal gutters, drums and rotors, farm equipment, stainless steel, axles, radiators and insulated wire. If you have any questions or need assistance in getting your donated items to the Fairgrounds, please don’t hesitate to contact the Fair Committee at

We will also be accepting intact car batteries for recycling. No tires on rims or appliances containing Freon will be accepted. Please properly drain all fluids out of engines and transmissions prior to delivery.

While you’re there, the NEATTA Club (New England Antique Tractor & Truck Association) will be hosting an Antique Tractor and Garden Tractor Pull, Static Show of Antique Farm Tractors, Garden Tractors and Trucks as well as a Swap Meet at the Fairgrounds. The NEATTA Club has been very helpful in assisting the RCF Committee and we are happy to provide them a place to host their popular spring-time show. The event will also have kid’s games & crafts, a People’s Choice Awards for Best of Show, Most Original and Overall Favorite.  A cash donation or donation of non-perishable canned food is asked per person and will be delivered to Shepard’s food pantry. Please visit their website or contact Bev Baker at 508-222-7109 for additional information on this event.

The Rochester Country Fair Committee will be serving coffee and donuts in the morning as well as serving hot lunch out of the Fair’s Food Booth. The rain date is scheduled for May 5.
