Honesdale PA- For its 160th anniversary, the Wayne County Fair returns, running from Friday August 5 through Saturday August 13. Billed as the “most fun you’ll have all year”, the nine-day fair fills each day with shows, rides, games, food and farm, including some new attractions this year.
With 26 rides and kiddie land, kids of all ages have much to amuse them.
The annual Wayne County Fair, an agricultural fair, is one of the largest fairs in Northeastern PA and boasts an affordable pay one price model of only $12 per day, per person, that includes rides, parking, animals, exhibits and most entertainment.
The Wayne County Fair also offers two days for seniors, 62 and over to attend at half price, and this year the folks at the fair will honor veterans and active military personnel with the same deal for both on Friday, August 5 and Wednesday, August 10.
New to the Fair’s entertainment schedule this year, is a daily World-Class Wild West Showdown show and Michael Griffin, known as escape guy extraordinaire. At the grandstand, cover bands include Gypsy and The Best of the Eagles.
Also returning on small stage and grandstand will be Black Cat Hell Drivers, Rosaire’s Royal Racing Pigs, Dino Roar, Buffalo and Brandy, two nights of the demolition derby, harness racing and Monster Trucks.
The Wayne County Fair celebrates the area’s rich agricultural history with numerous exhibits, contests and farm animals. Take in a pony or tractor pull, then watch a 4-H competition featuring local animals raised by local kids. And if you like farm animals, head to the north end of the midway for horses, cows, pigs, chickens, rabbits and more.
If your passion is sausage and peppers, homemade ice cream, corn on the cob, funnel cakes or artisan grilled cheese, you’ll find some those too.
Wayne County Fair Premium Books, publishing soon, include rules and regulations entry forms, and a judging schedule.
