Thank you to everyone who was able to attend the 100 Year Anniversary of the Trinity County Fair, “Century of Fun in the Trinity Sun!”

As most everyone in our county is aware, we were making changes right up to opening day of the Fair. We modified the schedule after the carnival canceled due to air quality from the smoke, the rise in COVID-19 cases, and active fires on both sides of the county.  With that said we were able to put on a truly traditional Ol’ Time Fair with 3,107 Exhibit Entries. “Way to go Trinity County!”

Exhibitor of the Year was Karen Leadbetter of Hayfork, Jr. Exhibitor of the Year was Hailey Willburn from Southern Trinity, and for the second year in a row Burnt Ranch Elementary School won the Trinity County School Program!  

With 203 Junior Livestock Exhibits, we again broke our Junior Livestock Auction Record with more than $700,000 in sales, a huge thank you to our many Livestock Buyers!  

Live entertainment was enjoyed by Fair attendees with Gotcha Covered Band on Thursday night, Chad Bushnell and Matt Wallace on Friday night, and Johnny Roberts and the Cow Creek Cowboys on Saturday night.   

There were over 500 people who turned out for the Logging Show on Thursday night, and then again on Saturday and Sunday nights we had record attendance for the Mountain Valley Raceway Races and the Destruction Derby.

I apologize for the lateness of this as our staff was evacuated almost immediately after Fair ended on Sunday, Aug. 15. On behalf of myself, TCFA Board of Directors and the Fairgrounds staff, we would like to again thank everyone who attended the Fair, our sponsors who contributed to the exhibit premiums, entertainment, special events, and grounds maintenance; without the support of the Trinity County community we would not have an annual Fair.
