2016 FAIR DATES: AUGUST 14-20, 2016


The Fair is more than a gathering of rides, animals, and cotton candy. It is an opportunity for the Clarke County Ruritan Club to give back to our community. It is one of our county’s most cherished and celebrated events, where new memories are made and old memories are shared.

The Clarke County Fair has been and still is a collection of livestock exhibits, carnival rides, farm, garden and other exhibits. These events convey the county’s love of agricultural and home interests and define and unite us as a community.  

This year we have a new Carnival-see below for details and discounts. And a new pageant this year for girls ages 7-12: a Pre-Teen Miss Clarke County contest. Registrations accepted online!

If you are new to the Fair, welcome. If you have visited before, welcome back. We are sure you will have a week full of fun and wonderful memories!
Follow us on FACEBOOK for up-to-date announcements, post photos and share memories!
