With attendance steadily climbing over the last few years we are excitedly looking forward to 2016. We had over 18, 000 visitors during our week long fair in 2015. Belle City Amusements will be back this year and along with the fair board have planned a great show.
The Hendry County Fair is a 501c (3) nonprofit organization. Most all the revenue earned at the fairgrounds is put back into the local community.
Miss Hendry County is guaranteed a $2,000.00 scholarship. Local Businesses and Community groups donate to this scholarship as well. The entry deadline or the 2015 pageant will be announced soon – look for more information in the local newspapers.
Youth Livestock Program
Last Year’s sale grossed about $130,000 for 69 animals. We are thankful and grateful to Hendry County and the surrounding communities for their continued support.
In the Home Exhibit Building the dust is getting stirred up. That committee is planning some major repairs and updating this year. Four of the local schools participated last year, along with 4-h Clubs, local businesses, community organizations, and individuals. A booth cost $75.00 for all nine days of the fair and is a great opportunity to meet and greet the community.
The 2016 fair parade will be February 13, 2016. Contact 863-599-9060 and leave a message.
