— Written By and last updated by

children with sheepWe are eagerly planning the 2019 Swain County Agricultural Fair. What can you expect? A traditional county fair style festival, complete with 4-H livestock judging, educational booths, craft vendors, and local foods. There will also be judging categories for fresh vegetables, eggs and flowers, food preservation, and quilt entries. We are lining up the entertainment, including local Appalachian clogging teams.

pumpkinsThe Swain County Agricultural Fair is a place where people in the community can proudly display their handiwork,  canned goods, and quilts, youth can demonstrate their hard work and commitment in the livestock judging category, and gardeners can show off their harvest. It is the place to highlight the best of the best, and as always, the winning ribbon comes with bragging rights!

How can you be involved in the Swain County Agricultural Fair? Exhibits are one of the most interesting and educational aspects of the fair. Consider entering your handiwork, canned goods, fresh vegetables, or other items to the fair for judging. The fair is a great place to show off your talents.

Soil exhibitWe encourage you to come out, bring your friends and neighbors and enjoy the day with us. Stroll through the exhibits and admire the crafts and vendors, listen to some music and watch the cloggers perform. You might even decide that next year, you want to enter an item for judging.

We look forward to seeing you and with your support, we believe that this year’s fair will be the biggest and best ever.

The Swain County Fair will be held on Saturday, August 17, 2019, from noon until 6 p.m. at the Swain County Event Park, 1130 Hyatt Creek Road, Bryson City, NC.
