Calhoun County Fair

Wednesday, April 20, 2016

 

For the first time in about three decades - the sights, sounds and smells of an old fashioned county fair are making their way to Calhoun County. After years without a county agricultural fair, a group of organizers is bringing the fair back to town and hoping that it will – once again – become a permanent part of life in Calhoun County. The fair will get started on Wednesday evening and run through Sunday afternoon at the Calhoun County Ag Center on Bynum-Leatherwood Road. We caught up with one of the organizers today during set-up and he says that the fair will help support the youth agriculture programs in the county. The fair committee says that the Calhoun County Commission and the Calhoun County Chamber of Commerce have both been a big part of bringing the fair back to the county. The fair will feature rides and a midway by James Gang Amusements, an antique tractor show, arts and crafts booths and plenty of nightly entertainment under a huge tent. The Calhoun County Fair will be open from 5pm until 10pm on Wednesday and Thursday, 5pm until 11pm on Friday and Saturday, and from 1pm until 5pm on Sunday. Gate admission is $5 for Adults, $3 for kids 6-12 and free for kids 5 and under. Thursday night will be "School Night". All area students will get special admission and ride discounts throughout the night. For more information, search for the Calhoun County Fair event page on Facebook.
