Demolition Derby Cancelled

Due to inclement weather the Hardin County Fair Board has made the tough decision to cancel this evening’s Demolition Derby.

The week’s weather conditions, which are expected to continue throughout the day, have made the track unable to handle the weight of the equipment needed to set up the derby pit.

Refunds will be issued, Information concerning refunds are available in the Fair Office.

Rain Temporarily Changes Procedures

The Hardin County Fair board has made several changes to better accommodate fair goers and exhibitors.

Hour of Inspiration

The Hour of Inspiration will still be held, however it will be held in the show arena. Music starts 10:00 am, and the service will begin at 10:30am.

Swing Choir Show

The Hardin County Fair Swing Choir Show has been cancelled due to the same hazardous stage conditions as the concert.

Demolition Derby

The demolition derby will be held as planned. Parking and traffic flow will be modified to attempt to preserve the infield area as much as possible. Direction will be provided by fair directors and law enforcement.

Camper & Vendor Release

Due to the extremely muddy conditions, campers and vendor trailers will have the opportunity to stay on-grounds through Sunday, September 14th in order to give ample time for them to be removed. The board asks campers to attempt to conserve energy as they sit through the week. Campers, or any other exhibits, must remain on the grounds until 7:00pm Sunday.

Country Concert Cancelled

Due to inclement weather leading to safety concerns for our concert attendees, the Hardin County Fair Board has made the tough decision to cancel this evening’s Dylan Scott and Brown & Gray concert.

The week’s weather conditions, which are expected to continue throughout the day, have created unsafe conditions and potential safety hazards to the spectators, the acts and their crews.

Refunds will be issued, Information concerning refunds will be released following the closing of the fair.

CORRECTION: Beef Weigh In Times

The Hardin County Fair Beef Department is issuing a correction to the Hardin County Fair Premium Book.

According to beef department superintendent Dale Cockerell, The market beef weigh-in will be on Monday, September 3rd from 4:00pm to 5:00pm – beginning with beef feeders.

Page 25 of the fair book incorrectly states that beef feeders will be weighed from 6:30-7:30, and steers will weigh from 7:00-8:00. Again, those time are INCORRECT.

The beef department would also like to remind exhibitors that all beef projects must be in-place by 3:30 on Monday, September 3rd.
