Skamania County Fair
When: From 08/13/2014 to 08/17/2014
Featuring livestock, 4-H fun, delicious food and a number of still life exhibits, the Skamania County Fair is a family-friendly event. Come and enjoy the annual parade and fireworks display.
Here comes the Fun! The 2014 Skamania County Fair and Timber Carnival hits the Skamania County Fairgrounds in scenic Stevenson, WA, August 13-17. This year “The Fab Fair” celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Beatles first visit to the United States that sparked the British Invasion. At the Skamania County Fair, all you need is love…and free admission, and live entertainment, and carnival rides, and fireworks, and crafts, and livestock, and contests, and yummy food and vendors! Located in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge, the event is the last original “free-gate” fair in the Northwest, and offers plenty of groovy good times for the whole family.
This Fair welcomes fabulous talent to the event main stage: Don’t miss evening shows by Funkship on Wednesday, Willy and Nelson on Friday, and Amber and the Pale Ales on Saturday. We invite you to participate in the annual Talent Show on Thursday. Why not don a mop top and belt a Beatles cover, or perform any talent that you have. Visitors will look forward to the return of Nevada Slim and Cimarron Sue. Their spirited narrative of the old west is brought to life through traditional cowboy and western music.
Guests will be treated to delicious food, lots of livestock, 4-H fun, and countless exhibits. You can stir it up in the Exhibit Hall kitchen. Check out the 2014 Premium Book on line at www.skamaniacountyfair.com for details on our daily cooking contests, and entry process. Don’t miss demonstrations, the return of the annual Market Sale, Timber Carnival, Downtown Parade, and firework displays (Friday and Saturday nights). Cascade Amusements will be on the grounds with exciting rides in tow. The carnival guarantees loads of laughs and thrills for all. Daily unlimited ride bracelets are on sale now at participating retailers for only $15 (price is $20 when purchased at the fair).
The Fair Board invites you to help make this the most “Fab Fair” ever! Enter a work of art, delicious baked treat, Lego invention, or gardening sensation. We hope to fill the Exhibit Hall with our community’s creations. We look forward to your many parade and talent show entries. Volunteer opportunities are available, too. We encourage energetic individuals to share their time, ideas, and communal spirit.
The Skamania County Fair celebrates the tradition of people sharing their knowledge, skills, and talents. Come have fun at the “Fab Fair”!
