The Warren County Fair enters the Pennsylvania State Association of County Fairs Convention (PSACF) for the seventh year in a row.

Not only did the Warren Co. Fair win Best of Show for the second year in a row, they were also awarded first in traditional scrapbook, first on fair floor display, second on traditional scrapbook cover, second on fair table display, second on digital scrapbook, third on place mat and third on promotional material.

“I’m elated, it is just something really great for our fair to go down to Hershey and compete against 46 fairs,” said Linda Fehrenbach, a Fair Board director. “The Warren Co. Fair is very proud to have won the Best of Show for the second year in a row. It was very unexpected.”

All Pennsylvania fairs are invited to enter into the convention and can enter any categories, all categories or just one. The convention is a voluntary non-profit educational organization aiming to promote the growth and improvement of agricultural fairs, associations and societies within Pa.

While attending the convention, there is an opportunity for Fair Board members to attend seminars, table topics and to network with other fairs.

Table topics are done as a round table discussion and this year’s discussions included topics such as “Organizing Your Scrapbook,” presented by Warren Co. Fair Board Director Laura James and Linda Wolfe from Schuylkill Co., and “Organization of Fair Office and Updating Systems,” presented by Warren Co. Fair Board Director Christy Burns.

Along with learning more about fair life, the current fair Warren Co. fair queen Michelle Enos got the chance to compete in the Pa. Fair Queen pageant alongside 58 others from across the commonwealth.

During the pageant, the fair queens are interviewed and required to perform a speech on “Why should you attend me fair.”

“We are so fortunate to have volunteers that are willing to create the items we enter in the competition,” said Fehrenbach.
