Jasper County Fairbooks for the 2013 fair, themed “The Jasper County Fair, Where Friends Meet and Memories are Made” and scheduled for July 19-25, are available at local banks, business, libraries and city halls.  

The fair will feature youth exhibits, open class events for everyone, entertainment for the whole family and a jam-packed week of memories in the making. There also will be a “Tailgaters Contest.” Anyone can enter the family-friendly tailgate party. The main rule is to support your favorite team. Team spirit and colors, decorations, food and sportsmanship are all part of the contest.

Set-up for the Tailgaters Contest will be at 6 p.m. Friday, July 19, with judging between 7 and 8:30 p.m. on the south property of the fairgrounds. Winners will be announced at approximately 8:45 p.m., at the beginning of the Toby Kid Family Comedy Concert. To register contact Rhonda at (641) 521-0741.
