If you haven’t been at the Florence County Fair in Recent Years. . . 
. . .you just may be surprised at what we have accomplished and what we have to offer you!

The 2016 Florence County Fair marks the 113th annual anniversary celebration of our family-friendly tradition. While many items and activities have changed throughout the last 113 years, one very important item has not changed. The Florence County Fair is a celebration of the many and varied talents of our Florence County residents as well as well as serving as a showcase of our County’s agricultural and  natural resources.

As we make plans for events and activities at the fair, we are constantly trying to keep our costs low. And we have continued to do just that. In 2016, we have added multiple new contests and activities, such as a Mud Bog and a Bean Bag Tournament to name just a few of them.

One change that we are making this year is a change in the charge to get into the fair. In the past, attendees have had to purchase a parking pass or an entry fee good for the entire weekend, to attend the fair. For this year’s fair, there will no longer be a fee for parking at the fair. Admission to the Florence County Fair will be free for children ages 12 & under. There will be an admission fee for people ages 13 and older of $5, which is good for the entire three days of the fair.

Once you are at the fair, most of the entertainment and activities are free to watch and participate in. The complete schedule of events takes almost 2 entire pages of this newsletter! Out of all those activities, there are only four which require an additional entry fee for you to participate in—the Mud Bog, the Bean Bag Tournament, the Got Beer!? Fun/Run Walk and the Classic Car and Motorcycle Show. These events are free for the general public to watch, so the only additional costs are the entry fees for the events.

All of our music, old-fashioned kids games, kids Penny Scramble, exhibits, magic shows, horse pull, horse show, truck contest, Little King & Queen contest, cricket spitting contest, pie eating contest, plus many MANY more activities are all free to attend and participate in.  

Charging admission to the fair is one of the ways that the fair is able to afford to provide the complete schedule of entertainment and activities provided during the fair. In addition to admission, the fair also operates Lydia’s Kitchen and the Beer Stand during the fair to provide food and beverages to attendees while earning additional money to put towards the fair activities and expenses. It is important to note that even with our food at the fair, we strive to keep prices our food prices low and affordable. We don’t have our food costs determined yet this year, but last year (for example) we were able to keep our food prices low — charging between $3 and $5 for a sandwich (porketta, hamburger, hot turkey, barbecue, etc) and just $0.50 to $3.00 for beverages (soda, water, lemonade, milk, coffee, beer, wine coolers, etc). We also have a variety of 
other items we sell such as cheese curds, French fries, walking tacos, corn on the cob, chips, a wide array of homemade desserts, pies, etc.

Our goal is to keep our 113th Annual County tradition a family-friendly event affordable for everyone who is attending.  

We hope to see you there!
