PRESS CONFERENCE IN PERIODIC COSTUMES TO ANNOUNCE RETURN OF LONG ISLANDS OLDEST FAIR WITH PORTION OF SALES GOING TO HURRICANE VICTIMS 
 
(Mineola N.Y.) September 15, 2017 — Nassau County Parks Commissioner Brian Nugent will join local residents dressed in period costumes to announce the return of Long Island’s oldest Fair that dated back to 1842. The Inn Keepers of the Milleridge Inn will also re-introduce a over century old dish made of Yankee Pot Roast wrapped in cheese, bacon, gravy and trimming. The dish is now served as a pound weighed sandwich, which was introduced at the original Fair for five cents.
What’s now called the Nassauwich will be re-introduced at a news conference as the official food of the revived Long Island Fair. It was replaced by hot dogs and hamburgers over 75 years ago. The announcement will take place Friday, September 15th at 12:00 PM in the Bethpage Village Restoration. 
The Long Island Fair takes place this weekend with thousands of exhibits competing for blue ribbons in categories such as culinary, horticulture, live stock and needlework. There will also be jugglers, magic and puppet shows and craft demonstrations with live concerts and dancing. Local lumberjacks will be demonstrating crosscut sawing and log rolling contests.
The Old Bethpage Village restoration is a 209 acre recreated living museum village with dozens of historical structures that include barns, and an old fashion general store. It is the official site of the Long Island Fair, which originally was in Mineola and dates back to 1842 in Queens, before Nassau County was formed.
