2023 ``The Best 10 Days of Fall``

Our fair committee is excitedly planning our 2023 fair. We hope this will be the BEST one ever. For over 74 years our fair has strengthened Wayne and surrounding counties by bringing people together to celebrate agriculture. We have provided a venue for youth and adults to showcase their talents and skills, given our patrons a wide variety of fair foods, provided quality entertainment, and presented a midway with amazing rides. Please follow us on FaceBook (Wayne Regional Agricultural Fair) for the very latest. Our plans are to have “The Best 10 Days of Fall”.  Our website will be updated as plans are finalized.
