Elma

Annual county fair opens Wednesday

The five-day Grays Harbor County Fair — themed “Grow it, Sew it, and Show it in Style” for this year — opens on Wednesday at the Elma fairgrounds.

The fair offers Davis carnival rides, midway games and animal exhibits, as well as concert stages, car races or food concessions. Returning for another year, the popular 4-H animals, floral displays, baked goods and garden entries will be judged in the fair pavilion and barns.

“With general admission to the fair priced at $10 for adults, $6 for seniors and $6 for students aged from 6 to17, the county fair is a great value,” said Fairgrounds and Tourism Director Mike Bruner. Children 5 and under are free.

“On Sunday, get in line early for free admission from 10 to 11 a.m. We also honor those who are serving or have served our country by offering a $2 military discount for the entire run of the fair,” Bruner added.

Fair admission includes free, general admission seating to live entertainment on the Pepsi stage. Along with well-known country singer-songwriter, Thomas Rhett, this year’s other headlining entertainment features rocker Cody Beebe and The Crooks, local country-rock band Humptulips for a Friday night Barn Dance and Atomic Punks — an award-winning tribute band to Van Halen during the David Lee Roth era. Golden Circle reserved-seating tickets for the Thomas Rhett concert include fair gate admission, and are on sale now at the fair office for $40.

Grounds and stage acts for this year’s fair include the comedy and stunts of Matt Baker, as well as local and regional entertainment appearing on the QMart and Jodesha stages. In addition, there is the Fair Talent Show, Home Depot Hands-On Workshops for kids and the Youth Livestock Auction. Back by popular demand and appearing daily are the Predators of the Heart. There will also be free car racing on Saturday sponsored by the Grays Harbor Raceway and Pepsi.
