The annual Topsfield Fair is an institution on the North Shore, drawing between 450,000 – 500,000 people over its 10-day period. The fair features a large midway well as many agricultural exhibitions and events, including a giant pumpkin contest.

Topsfield History

Topsfield was incorporated as a village in 1650. Masconomet, a Native American Indian Chief who had a good relationship with the early settlers, sold much of what is now Essex County to John Winthrop, a central figure in the founding of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, for 20 pounds. Just a decades later, the Salem witch trials of 1692 touched Topsfield directly in that several of its citizens were executed as part of the hysteria. While the causes of the witchcraft episode continue to be debated, some believe that economic rivalry among factions in Salem and Topsfield fueled animosity between the two towns.

In the 1800s Topsfield evolved into a shoe manufacturing and farming economy and by the 20th century became home to many large estates. The automobile and development of America’s highways helped position Topsfield as a suburban bedroom community, home for many professionals who worked along the Route 128 high-tech corridor.
