Sustainable CAPE’s Truro Agricultural Fair
Celebrating Agriculture, Aquaculture, Fishing and Farming, the Truro Agricultural Fair offers a delicious variety of locally harvested foods from land and sea. The fair encourages a deeper appreciation of the traditional harvesting industries taking place on Cape Cod today. It showcases the Cape’s history, the foods currently grown and harvested, and connects the health of our local food system to our physical health, environment and future.

The Truro Agricultural Fair’s mission is to promote a broader appreciation of the agriculture, aquaculture, fishing and farming taking place on Cape Cod today. The fair showcases our agrarian history and the food currently grown and harvested, and connects the health of our local food to our environment and future. We aim to both educate and inspire – so that each of us can easily participate in the creation of a stronger local food system and more sustainable Cape Cod.
Goals and Benefits
Our varied displays provide a venue for the exchange of ideas and experience. Every fairgoer can learn about local food as well as positive steps each of us can take to help sustain our physical health, land and water resources. The fair also creates opportunities for involvement, fosters volunteer service, raises community spirit and benefits the Cape’s economy by offering a venue for the community to market their harvest and appreciate their neighbors’ work.
A multi-generational event, the Fair celebrates our harvesting history as we focus upon the future health of our community and this glorious sliver of land. All, of course, while having fun!
