Do you know when photos will be available for Thursday night?

Former board members, Hancil Miller and Richard (Dick) Hummel were honored on Monday night with the Distinguished Service Award in appreciation for their loyal and dedicated service to the success of the Fulton County Fair.
In addition, also acknowledged during the week was the passing of two special men - Rick Sheets and Greg Deakin - who will be remembered for their contributions and participation in front of and behind the scenes at many fair events including the scrambles, livestock shows and demo derby.
Most fair-goers don't realize how much work goes into preparing for fair week. Not only do board members volunteer countless hours before, during and after the fair, their families are all an integral part of many of the events, shows, and activities.
Our superintendents secure judges, coordinate exhibits/exhibitors and make sure their respective shows run smoothly. Meanwhile, there are parking attendants, ticket takers, clean up crews, equipment operators, and more who all chip in and do their part.
Finally, we simply could not put on the fair without our generous sponsors-donating money often earmarked for specific events, donating time and/or talents to repair and maintain our facilities, or donating products and services to support a multitude of activities throughout the week.
Altogether, we know it takes a village to make this week a success. We could not offer such a great fair to our community without these groups.
We hope you all enjoyed the 2022 Fulton County Fair. See you next year.

Congratulations Dick and Hancil for hours and years of service as well to many past and present members, superintendents, and volunteers! All is done with the purpose of having a wonderful fair for everyone to enjoy. And we do all because we enjoy and love the Fulton County Fair! Thanks to each and everyone!

Congratulations!!! Well deserved, these men put in countless hours over the years to put on the fair. All of the current and past fair board members deserve our praise as well. Most people don't realize the time and effort these folks put into the fair and the maintenance of the fairgrounds.
