Jefferson County Fair Barrel Racing

Barrel Racing at the Jefferson County Fair
August 8 – 10, 2014

It’s time once again for the Jefferson County Fair! August 8th through the 10th, 2014. Jefferson County’s annual fair is an old fashioned, country-style fair with contests, 4-H and FFA exhibits, live music and fun for the whole family.

The annual Jefferson County Fair is a traditional county fair, providing county residents and visitors to the area an exhibition of local accomplishments in livestock, agriculture, arts, crafts, husbandry, stewardship, and entertainment.
