Schedule: First full week in August, Sunday - Saturday

This weeklong fair is full of festive activities for all ages. The carnival starts on Tuesday and runs through the week. There are over 40 contests for all sorts of talents and hobbies, a demolition derby, horseshows and motor sports. The music stages start around 6 each evening, with a heritage tent for the traditional bluegrass, old-time, and gospel musicians. The festival was established in 1882 and has seen many changes since then, but some things never change.
