Running July 10th-14th the Jefferson County Fair is back and has a fun filled week packed with lots of entertainment. 

“It’s for everybody. I enjoyed it as a child and I enjoy it as an adult.” Kassidy Hege who is the Jefferson County Fair Coordinator tells us. “And I want other people to feel the same way I do for the fair. It’s a community event and we’re super excited to see new faces and faces we’ve seen before.” 

The Jefferson County Fair is a multigenerational fair that started in 1852. It was started by a couple of farmers that wanted to showcase their animals and crops and has grown exponentially since then. The same families that even started the show then, are still showing and a part of it now. 

“It’s something we’re super proud of.” Abby Schopen Events Manager explains. As she touches on the history of the fair and its importance. “We really are super inclusive within that community”. 

One new feature they are excited to introduce is “Heart Of The Park”. With different themes to showcase every day. “There is space in the middle of the park that is usually just an empty gravel parking lot. And so we decided to put some things there!” says Abby Schopen. She also expresses there has been excitement around the participation already. 

For the first time at the Jefferson County Fair there will be a Rodeo for grandstand entertainment. This will take place Friday July 12th. Along with music entertainment running everyday from Noon-Midnight.
