Franklin County Fair

The 2018 Franklin County Fair will see some major changes this year, including being held a month earlier than usual, with the Fair scheduled for June 7-10.

Fair officials announced Monday that the 2018 Franklin County Fair lineup would not include main stage entertainment or a bull ride. Additionally, a new ride company is on board this year.

The date change is due to the sled availability for the truck and tractor pull.

“We would like to thank everyone for their continued support (of) this community event,” a press release said. “Without our local community support, this event could not go on each year.”

Visitors can look forward to the sixth annual Fair parade Thursday, June 7, at 6 p.m.

Additionally, the entertainment tent will have live music each day. The 4-H/FFA livestock shows will be held Friday and Saturday with archery on Sunday.

A horseshoe tournament will be held each day of the Fair.

Advertising will be sold through Feb. 1.
