Scott County Fair Association held their 100th annual fair September 7-10, 2022. For its hundredth birthday the fair saw record breaking number of livestock, exhibitors, and money from the premium sale. Walking the livestock barn was sure a sight to behold. There were 105 animals present in the barn, shown by 71 exhibitors. Of the 105, about half (56) went into the premium sale. Buyers showed up and showed out, rewarding the exhibitors with great payouts. 

The poultry and rabbit barn saw great numbers, too. There were 133 birds and 6 rabbits shown by 41 exhibitors. Honking, clucking, cock-a-doodles, turkey calling, and quaking noises were all taking place.

To be eligible to show at the Scott County fair kids need to be involved in FFA or 4H. Showing animals teaches responsibility, discipline, and self confidence. It can be an expensive venture to purchase and upkeep an animal, but the memories and lessons learned far outlast the show ring. The future of agriculture looks bright for Scott County seeing the excellent turnout of its youth for the fair, and their eagerness to work.

The Scott County fair board is responsible for the fair each year. The board this year was President- Caleb Free, Vice President, Rusty Craig, Treasurer- Heather Hale, Secretary- Amy Free and board members: Amber Craig, Sandra McEntire, Sue Williams, Betty Overturf. To be involved in the 2023 Scott County fair attend their meetings on the third Monday of each month.
