The 2012 Hamilton County Fair is Sept. 29 and 30 at Chester Frost Park from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. both days.
There will be a wide variety of foods, hand-made arts and crafts, and live music on two stages. The community stage features gymnastics, dance, martial arts and performances by local groups. There will be 17 acts competing for the $500 prize at the County Fair Talent Show on Saturday at 4 p.m. Live music on two stages will be 24 bands including the Bluegrass Pharaohs, Tin Cup Gypsy, Huckleberry Wine and the Beaters. This year’s Agricultural Arena lineup includes some new equestrian performances and educational presentations by the Hamilton County 4-H Club. Special dog exhibitions including a sled-dog demonstration will also be held in the Ag. Arena.
The County Fair is a “park and ride” event. There is no on-site parking at Chester Frost Park. To get to the fair, catch the shuttle at Northgate or Middle Valley Recreation Center. Tickets are $6 for adults and $4 for children 3-12. There is no admission fee and lots of free things to do and see at the fair.
The fair will be held rain or shine. Strollers and wheelchairs are allowed. Bags will be checked prior to boarding. All vehicles with proper handicap designation will be directed to an onsite parking area and guests will be shuttled via handicap accessible vans to the fairgrounds.
