2021 ``A Fair to Remember``

Our fair committee is excitedly planning our 2021 fair. We hope this will be the BEST one ever. For over 70 years our fair has strengthened Wayne and surrounding counties by bringing people together to celebrate agriculture. We have provided a venue for youth and adults to showcase their talents and skills, given our patrons a wide variety of fair foods, and presented a midway with amazing rides.

There may have to be some changes to our schedule of events due to restrictions beyond our control. Please follow us on facebook (Wayne Regional Agricultural Fair) for the very latest. Our plans are to have “A Fair to Remember”
