Vanderburgh County Fair 1920-2017

Welcome to the 97th running of the Vanderburgh County Fair. I am honored to be leading one of the premiere events in Vanderburgh County. The Vanderburgh County Fair offers so many things for young and old alike to enjoy from 4-H projects, livestock, talent shows, antique tractors, rides, great food and nightly entertainment in the grandstand at an affordable price for families to enjoy. These are just a few of the things that you can experience at the 2017 Vanderburgh County Fair.

All of this wouldn’t happen without the hundreds of volunteers serving hundreds of hours all year long to make this the best county fair in the state! Hats off to everyone that graciously gives their time and talents to the fair! We could not do it without you!

Jeff, Shanta, Melanie, Sara, Sherry, Norman and myself want to welcome all of you and say “Have a great week at the fair!”

Scott Berry  President Vanderburgh County Fair
