RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont State Fair will be cut back from 10 to six days next year.

Don Chioffi, president of the Rutland County Agricultural Society, says the board of trustees voted unanimously this week for the change.

The fair will start next year as it has in past on the Friday before Labor Day.

Chioffi told the Rutland Herald (https://bit.ly/1qsDyil ) that the fair has been too long. He says “Rutland County’s not the same county it was back in 1836.”

He says the 10-day run is tiring for vendors and workers. He says the first weekend usually has the biggest turnout, with attendance dropping through the week.
