The Jefferson County Exhibition opens Sunday

LEETOWN: Jefferson County fair officials are excited for next week’s event, which will be held in context forums starting this weekend. After a difficult decision to cancel the 2020 show due to the Covide-19 epidemic, organizers, exhibitors and attendees may be anxiously awaiting the official opening.

Justice Manager Todd Wills shared that the show feels beautiful and casual – all thanks.

“We have an estimated 650 animals out of 200 exhibits on campus,” said Wilt. These exhibitions include adults and young people who bring their 4-H or FF animals to competitions.

Exhibitions in other areas range from cancer and baking to needlework, handicrafts, photography and gardening. Adults and young people can enter all of these exhibitions on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Fairgoers can look forward to their favorite activities, such as tractor trailer, fire racing, demolition derby and Tuff truck and car racing. Favorites such as the Chip Chip Bingo and the annual 4-H and FAF bakery auction are also on tap. Young people can look forward to every competition, from bubble-swept contests to apple and corn-eating events.

Spectators can gather at any time of the day or at the stage for performances and competitions, including towing trucks and tractors, woodworking, music entertainment, and more.

Each of the county’s middle and high school bands opened on Mondays and Tuesdays, and on Wednesday and Tuesday nights, the country’s music legend Wilon Jennings took to the stage. On Thursday night, the Revolution Band will perform. Each of these entertainment options is included in the paid entrance to the show – no extra fees.

During Sunday afternoon’s opening ceremonies, spectators will be encouraged to compete in the Jefferson County Contest on Saturday, August 21 at 6:30 p.m., followed by Miss Jefferson County Sunday at 1:30 p.m. At 6:30 pm, all three fair competition winners will participate in and oversee a number of activities during Fair Week.

During the week, youngsters show off their animals, hoping to win the blue ribbon and the title of great champion.

As the fair approaches, those who want to sell their animals can do so at the annual livestock auction on Saturday. Local businesses and individuals usually meet to compete with each other to raise money to raise their animals or to reimburse them for the next year.

Those who want a full schedule can find it on the Jefferson County Fair Justice website or on the Facebook page where they are updated daily.
