Come Celebrate the Wayne County Fair’s 65th year, August 10th-13th where country meets city in Belleville, MI. Run by an all volunteer board, the fair has an array of exciting events sure to include something for everyone and free gate giveaways everyday for the 1st 50 children 12 and under. Monster Truck rides daily will provide great fun for all ages at $5 per person.
The Wayne County Fair Association was established in 1946 and the objective has been to promote and advance the interest of agriculture, horticulture, household arts and develop youth education through 4-H projects, training and demonstrations. Throughout the week of Fair, the 4-H youth will show and exhibit their animals and other projects. Their week at fair will include caring for their animals, answering visitor’s questions and participating in a livestock auction where they can sell their animals. This year the Wayne County Fair will be “Going Green” with a $24,000 grant sponsored by the Michigan Soybean Council for the Green Fair Project. This grant will help with much needed improvements and repairs through the use of soybean based products such as insulation, paint, printing products, roofing, and cleaning products. The fair hopes to incorporate many more green projects for educational and practical uses throughout the fairgrounds. The Wayne County Fair is grateful for being one of the 7 county fairs selected to receive this grant.
The fun begins on Wednesday, August 10th with Family Day with $1 Parking and plenty of activities for the whole family. Animal shows, kid’s games provided by Belleville Rotary, and carnival rides with $10 pay one price or $1 rides (starting at 4:00).
