The Annual Fair at Argyle Park is one of the largest events of its kind in the region.
The artisan craft fair, which is sponsored by the Babylon Beautification Society, draws nearly 40,000 attendees per year, according to the event organizers.
This year’s event, which is scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 8, will have over 300 vendors.
To help navigate you, we created a guide for this year’s outing.
The Annual Fair at Argyle Park runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The fair is split by Montauk Highway with vendors stationed to the north around Argyle Lake with the other merchants at Argyle Park’s gazebo.
Here are some things going on at the gazebo.
There will be live performances by the Argyle Theatre, The Sold Out Band, and the No Request Band.
The Babylon Beautification Society tent will be set up, where they will be selling raffles for its big giveaway. The grand prize includes four Yankees in the Legend’s Suite. Click here to see all the prizes.
The beer stand will be set up in this area. A variety of beers, including pumpkin beers, will be sold beginning at 11 a.m.
For food, there will be vendors selling hot dogs, hamburgers, sandwiches, pretzels, roasted corn.
GreaterBabylon will have a booth near the beer tent, where the team will be selling T-shirts and stickers.
Next to the gazebo at Bayman Park, there will a children section with bouncy houses, horse riding, and a petting zoo.
A majority of the 300-plus craft and artisanal sellers will be along the lake. These vendors will begin setting up around 6 a.m.
There will be a couple of food trucks and a Mister Softee set up along Trolley Line Road.
The Babylon Beautification Society will be setting up another satellite booth near Babylon High School football field where they will be selling sandwiches, soda, water from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will be a DJ performance there at that time.
With the influx of so many people in the downtown, parking can be tough.
Some of the places to park include the Babylon LIRR commuter lots, as well as the village’s municipal lots behind Deer Park Avenue.
If you plan on parking on the street, make sure to be wary of the time restrictions.
