WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — New England’s largest fair is set to pay homage to one of the world’s most iconic fairs this fall.

Officials with Eastern States Exposition announced Tuesday that this year’s Big E will commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the 1964-1965 New York World’s Fair.

The special exhibit, which will be housed in the Young Building, will feature a large collection of Ford’s World’s Fair memorabilia, including a scale model of the Ford Pavilion and an authentic 1965 Mustang.

In total, over 250 artifacts and souvenirs are expected to be on-display.

The centerpiece of the exhibit will be a seven foot tall recreation of the “Unisphere” globe, which was an iconic symbol of the World’s Fair and still stands in Queens, New York.

The 2014 Big E is scheduled from September 12 to 28, 2014 on the Eastern States Exposition fairgrounds in West Springfield.
