{Connecticut Building}
The Big E, also known as The Eastern States Exposition, is billed as “New England’s Great State Fair”.  It is the largest agricultural event on the eastern seaboard and the 5th largest fair in the nation. In 2016, the Big E's attendence was 1,418,042 people.  One of the most popular attractions at the Big E is the Avenue of States which is inclusive of all six of the New England States: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. 
The goal of the Connecticut Building is to promote the State’s agriculture and natural resources; Connecticut-based industries; tourism and culture; and to celebrate the talent, skill and innovation of Connecticut artists, craftspeople, agricultural producers and manufacturers. 

The Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) is committed to offering Connecticut businesses and non-profit organizations the opportunity to exhibit at the Connecticut Building. Only items produced, grown, crafted, manufactured or significantly altered in Connecticut may be sold in the Connecticut Building.

The 2017 Big E is scheduled for:
