Cheers to 35 Years of Farms, Families, Fair, and Fun


Wednesday, August 1st is always a fun day at the fair as Commissioner Hess will attest as he will be participating in the Celebrity Tractor Pull. You won’t want to miss the Celebrity Tractor Pulls on Wednesday, August 1. (Photo by: Ray Silcox)

What:              Everyone is invited to spend a day at the Schuylkill County Fair.  Where we are celebrating 35 years of Farms, families, Fair, fun.   Schuylkill Country Fair has been operating  for 35 years.     During that time some well establish contests have developed and some new ones are being introduced for the first time this year.  What would the fair be without its ethnic diversity?  A Boilo Competition exemplifies our regional culture.  A friendly game of Quiz Bowl is making a return for the fun that is always being had at the fair.  Speaking of fun, don’t miss out on the Adult Milk (mustache), Chugging and Pie (in your face) Eating contests.

Speaking of contests don’t miss out on the Celebrity Tractor Pull on the Track.  See who can push the petal to the metal the hardest as that powerful tractor make its way down the track pulling the weighted sled.  While at the track don’t blink or you may miss the Side by Side FWD Drag Races.  This competition is open to both diesel and gas trucks.

Mahoney Brothers will be found on the M & T Stage at both 7 and 9 pm.  Crazy Heart is sponsored by Red Lion Café.

Speaking of sponsors Wednesday I sponsored by the Schuylkill County Commissioners who proudly support the Schuylkill County Fair as a as a vital part of Ag-tourism to the area.  So when you see a Commissioner at the Fair or else wear say THANKS.

Experience more country scene back at the Weston Pavilion when visiting with the Red Creek Wildlife Rehabilitation Demonstrations held daily at 5:30. 6:30, and 7:30.
