ELMA, Wash. - With a flurry of previews, Grays Harbor County announced it will celebrate more than a century of country fun when the fairgrounds light up for a five-day run from August 7-11 in Elma.
Fairgoer favorites, such as carnival rides, midway games and animal exhibits, offer close-up excitement in addition to the family-friendly live-entertainment stages, car races and food concessions. Returning for another promising year, the popular 4H animals, floral displays, baked goods and garden entries will be judged in the fair pavilion and barns.
Special headliner attractions include country music star Clay Walker in concert plus the iconic Davis Carnival midway. The popular Predators of the Heart exhibit, sponsored by Sierra Pacific and Great NW Federal Credit Union and free sprint-car racing at the Gray Harbor Raceway sponsored by Pepsi will round out the exciting action at the fair.
With general admission to the fair priced at only $10 for adults, $6 for seniors, and $6 for students aged from 6 to17, the county fair is a great bargain,” said Mike Bruner Grays Harbor Fairgrounds and Tourism Director.
Grounds and stage acts for this year’s fair include a “Larry the Cable Guy” impersonator, as well as Paul Isaak, who will dazzle the crowd with his amazing juggling and magic shows.
Fair admission includes free, general admission seating to top-notch live musical entertainment on the Pepsi stage. Along with top-selling country singer, Clay Walker, this year’s other headlining entertainment features Danny Whyms and his tribute to the “Fabulous Johnny Cash”; popular, country-rock band Humptulips who will be playing the Friday Night Barn Dance; and Arch Allies, a renowned tribute band to Styx, REO Speedwagon and Journey -- sponsored by The Vaughan Company. Golden Circle reserved-seating tickets for the Clay Walker concert, that also includes fair gate admission, are on sale now at the fair office for just $30.
