he Big E, one of the top 10 fairs in North America, not only provides a one-of-a-kind entertainment experience for the more than 1 million people who attend, it also promotes the agriculture and culture of New England and pumps almost a quarter of a billion dollars into the economy of the region.

In a study, conducted by Regional Economic Models, Inc., (REMI) of Amherst, Mass., the overall economic output as a result of tourism from outside Hampden County to The Big E is $224,970,000 with Gross Regional Product (analogous to the national Gross Domestic Product) of over $150 million annually.

The annual 17-day Big E is a powerful energizer in the region's economy. Eastern States Exposition (ESE) President, Eugene J. Cassidy said, “The Eastern States Exposition’s “Big E” provides an economic impact to our region like no other event within hundreds of miles. The economic horsepower generated by the Fair is measured to be a quarter of a billion dollars. This impact, coupled with that of our year-round events, generates thousands of jobs, disposable income for our region, and tens of millions of dollars in tax revenues for the Commonwealth.”

Eastern States Exposition is a flexible, multi-purpose facility that is capable of meeting a variety of needs. Our buildings range in size from 28,000 sq. ft. to 129,400 sq. ft. and can be used in combination for a total of more than 355,000 sq. ft. of exhibit space.


The park-like setting of ESE provides a beautiful backdrop to our annual events, Storrowton Village Museum -- a reconstructed 19th century village, Storrowton Tavern -- serving the finest New England fare and The Big E, our annual exposition attracting more than 1 million visitors to our grounds each September.


A sampling of the more than 100 annual consumer and trade shows illustrates our flexibility and includes:


* The Original Western Mass. Home Show - held in our Better Living Center, Young Building and Stroh Building as well as outdoor areas.


* The Melha Shrine Circus - held in our 5,000 seat Coliseum.


* EASTEC - the largest machine tool trade show in the Northeast combines our Better Living Center, Mallary Complex, Young Building, Stroh Building and outdoor space for its event.

* Equine Affaire - the nation's foremost national equine exposition and equestrian gathering uses all available rental space on our grounds for its trade show including 800 horse stalls.


Eastern States Exposition also offers convenient interstate access, WiFi, extensive on-site parking and ATMs located throughout grounds.


Our people are our most important asset. Choosing Eastern States Exposition means choosing our cooperative, knowledgeable staff who are standing by to accommodate your every need.
