Binbrook Fall Fair and Farmers Market

Home to the annual Binbrook Fall Fair, this community is bursting with visitors every September as people from near and far come to experience the well known fair.

This year, the Binbrook Fall Fair marks its 169th year and will feature activities including a demolition derby, rodeo, animal shows, and of course, rides and games for the whole family. It will run from September 15-18, 2022.

When the fair is not in session, the fairgrounds are used to host other events such as the Binbrook Farmers Market, which showcases local artisans, farmers and businesses approximately once a month on June 25th, July 23rd, August 27th and October 8th, 2022.

Binbrook Little Theatre

Open since 1963, the Binbrook Little Theatre was started by a small group of people with a simple passion for theatre production. The venue now frequently hosts plays ranging from classics to mysteries, comedies and Disney remakes.

The theatre is a not-for-profit organization run entirely by volunteers, but that doesn’t stop it from being a powerhouse entertainment venue. Both productions and Binbrook Little Theatre actors have been nominated and won several awards.
