About Topsfield
map
Topsfield Massachusetts is an area of rolling hills and meandering streams and has some of the highest land in Essex County. Topsfield has a rural nature and contains a typical New England town common.

The town is home to many acres of protected land and trails which includes Bradley Palmer State Park. It is an excellent choice for hiking and biking in the spring and summer and cross country skiing in the winter. Topsfield also has plenty of agricultural land and hosts the Topsfield Fair.

The Topsfield Fair is America’s oldest agricultural fair established in 1818 and held every October during harvest time. The Fair is chock full of agricultural exhibits as well as homemade baked goods and farm animals. There is also a largest pumpkin contest-always the most popular exhibit. It also has plenty for the kids including great stuff to eat and also a midway loaded with amusement park rides and games and a parade. The Topsfield Fair is a fun time for everyone and well worth the price of admission. Plan to spend a day there next October-you will be glad you did.
