The Ferry County Fair is a long-held tradition around these parts. In fact, this year will be the 74th Annual Ferry County Fair!
Every year, a contest is held for the premium book cover image. This year, Hannah Jackson, a 12 year old participating in the Flying Arrows 4-H Club, won the contest. Hannah is in seventh grade and participating in her 4th year in 4-H. From the fair booklet, which can be found at many area businesses, “She enjoys drawing, acting, sleeping, cooking, archery, singing, dancing and telling jokes along with horseback riding.”
The Ferry County Fair is held this year from September 1st through August 3rd. This year, Aydia Wyckoff will represent the fair as the Fair Royalty Queen. Aydia says, “I have participated at the fair for 10 years. Over those years, I’ve shown horses, dogs, chickens, turkeys, goats and put numerous items in the exhibit hall.” For those that don’t know, the Exhibit Hall, in the big red barn, features crafts, creative arts, educational exhibits, engineering, technology, farm and home crops, foods and nutrition, food preservations, photography, plant science quilts and more. It is always a joy to browse through and see what your local friends have created for display.
Other sections at the fair include:
- Open Animal Section (cats, dogs, horses, performance horse event, livestock and rabbit/poultry)
- 4-H Pre-Fair Events Section (Shooting Sports, Public Presentations, Fashion Revue, Tractor Driving and more)
- 4-H Animal Section (Beef & Dairy Cattle, Cats, Dogs, Goats, Light Horse, Llama/Alpaca and more)
For all the details, pick up a fair booklet at a local place of business, or download it from this page. All of the fair information, including camping and admissions information, can be found on their website.
