The Fair will take place on the Orange Fairgrounds, 525 Orange Center Road, on Saturday, Sept. 18 and Sunday, Sept. 19.

You may notice that a few fan favorites like the Frying Pan Toss, Hay Bale Toss and Pig Races are missing this year, but with a bit of luck, if everyone behaves themselves and the United States gets COVID under control It may be back to normal next year.

In the meantime, get your contest entries together and prepare to have a good time at this year’s annual event. The Fair Committee worked so hard to put the event together for everyone’s enjoyment.
