2017 is here. Fair season is coming...
Kentucky Association of Fairs and Horse Shows convention has come and is history, with all members having plans made for their local fairs or horse shows in place. Will this event work at our fair? These are the types of questions brought to the 2017 convention and to all prior KAFHS conventions. Hopefully questions such as these were answered in one form or another. We all go back to our individual local communities with the plans and energy to make the 2017 fair or event, the best ever.

The crowning of Miss KY County Fair occurred on Saturday night of the convention. The pomp and ceremony was entertaining and pressure packed. As the crowning of 2017 occurred, Molly Faith Matney was crowned the 2017 KY County Fair queen, sponsored by Taylor County Fair. She will rein until next year, 2018. All participants came from member fairs and shows from KY. All participants were winners at the local fairs and shows. Be proud of each and all.

The convention ushered in a new year with new administration for the association. Bruce Jones took over the reins of leadership on Saturday of the convention. Bruce is from the Hopkins County Fair at Madisonville. The Spring meeting for the Association will be at Madisonville on May 5 and 6. Make your plans to attend and get involved.

Please continue to support and attend your local fair and shows. These are for your community’s benefit and enjoyment. Have a great year and support your local fair and show.
