This year, county residents can enjoy a free concert from Josh Gracin that will open the festival on August 8. Although the tickets are free, a complementary ticket is still required to attend and can be retrieved at Mountain America Credit Unions or the county fairgrounds.
The festival comes complete with a Dutch oven cook-off, demolition derby and plenty of animal shows from birds to reptiles. Those looking to win some prizes can compete in the cake decorating contest, quilt block challenge and many others. Children ages 5-14 may submit up to three book reports that will get them free ride tickets.
There are countless events to view or participate in at this year's fair. Admission is free, but parking is $7. For more information and a full line up of events, click here.
