150 Years of Exhibition Exhibition
Brendan Straser, a historian of the Kutzta area, described the history of the exhibition.
“Stutter Exhibition first dates back to 1870 and then back. In the early 1810s, 1820s, you would probably have a good time by assembling every year, raising a few beers, displaying a few weapons on targets, occasionally pointing at each other.
These events became known as battalion days and became very large in the 1820s and 1830s.
During the civil war, the city council had to remain in a state of turmoil until it was decided that they should stop. There was a lot of unrest and the city council finally blocked these battalion days, ”Straser said.
These events brought large crowds into the city, and people from one end of the country to the other went on a pilgrimage each year for a few days each year. Although battalion days were banned, people were present anyway.
A.D. In 1871, the Excavation Exhibition was organized by the Cultton Agricultural and Horticultural Association. The first performances took place on the streets of Kutzta, between Hutkok and Bucket Streets. The first playgrounds include exhibition buildings, a three-mile horse race track, and a nearby hotel.
“This show has really inspired hundreds of thousands of people to come to the city every year,” he said.
Due to the small size of the platform, the association was looking for more land but did not have a supportive membership. He said the exhibition was completed in 1903 and the lands were sold for lottery.
In 1905, Jacob Ezer was the founder and founder of the Coalition for Justice. When the city was founded in 1850, Ezer was known to most of the people of Kutzia because of its surroundings. Jacob was the third-generation owner and editor of the Kututan Patriots and the publishing company.
The equity firm quickly sold its shares and secured 32 quintals of land, which is the current location of the Kutuan plains. Later, an additional 20 acres were added.
“From 1905 to the present, we have been performing almost every year.
The Historical Society has a collection of photographs of midway, horse racing, and other events throughout the history of the festival. Fair Travelers can see the historic display in Building 9. Wednesday, August 11, at 6:30 p.m.
