Since its inception, the Babylon Country Fair has become a tradition for thousands of Long Islanders. Organized by the Babylon Beautification Society, a non-profit organization, the Fair is held annually on the Sunday after Labor Day in and around Argyle Park. The Fair offers a broad variety of outstanding arts and crafts, a special section devoted to children’s games and attractions and a festival of food booths. Our mission is to support projects and initiatives that contribute to the beauty of Babylon Village. We work closely with local government and community leaders as well as hundreds of volunteers to complete this mission. All of our proceeds are used to fund beautification projects in Babylon Village.
