166th Brown County Fair - Georgetown, Ohio

“Brown County Fair – The Heart of it All”

September 25-30, 2017

One of my favorite shows on television is N.C.I.S. A few weeks ago they had a story about the Vietnam Wall in Washington D.C. A very emotional story about a Vietnam Vet visiting the Wall through a program called Honor Flight Network. This group brings WW2, Korean, and Vietnam Veterans to Washington D.C. to visit and honor our Veterans. Their Website is: www.HonorFlight.org The story brought out a sad truth about our Vietnam Veterans. When these soldiers came home they did not receive any welcome home parades or any other honors that they deserved. At the end of the show the veteran in this story received a hero's welcome from his hometown. Help us show our Vietnam Veterans the appreciation they didn't get 50 years ago.

The Brown Co. Fairgrounds is honored to host the Brown County H.E.R.O. Tribute, May 11 through the 14th. Please plan on taking your families to see the Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall and other exhibits they plan to have. Their email is: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. This gives us a chance to honor the Vietnam Veterans of Brown County. A tribute is a payment to be safe. This event is about the tribute that these Vietnam Veterans who paid the ultimate price for us.

May 1 is the deadline for the Brown Co. Fair book cover contest. Two prizes of $50 one for a non-professional adult artist. the other $50 goes to a entry 18 or under non-professional artist. To get all the rules and timeline please visit: www.littlestatefair.com. The theme for the 166th Brown Fair is: "Brown County Fair-The Heart of it All".

The new Northeast bathrooms is coming right along with walls nearly finished. Close to the Floral Hall and rides, this should help the waiting in long lines during the Fair. Another project for this summer is a new storm drain near the fairboard office and going out to the parking lot. Last year we had a summer storm that flooded the whole building and we hope this will stop it.
