New Events at the 2015 Westmoreland Fair



cover pg top 2nd

In 1954 the Westmoreland Agricultural Fair Association was created by a group of Westmoreland County businessmen and farmers who were passionate about showcasing agriculture the 2nd largest business industry in Westmoreland County. Over the years it has grown from a small 3 day family oriented event into a large 9 day family oriented event that sees over 62,000 people from all over the southwestern Pennsylvania over the 9 days of the event.

Each year the volunteer board of directors and staff members work extremely hard to come up with ideas not only for events to be held in the grandstand, free entertainment on the grounds throughout the event, contests for those attending to take part in as well as new categories for those interested in competing in for blue ribbons and premiums. The exhibits entered into the fair from growing vegetables, canning, baking, cake decorating, with the largest category being photography, just to mention a few (there really are too many categories to mention) are NOT just for kids in 4-H, ANYONE can enter to exhibit in any open class of their choice.

This year once again the staff and directors have brought back some tried and true events that everyone enjoys watching such as demo derbies, truck pulls, tractor pulls, and bull mania. They have also brought back the Monster Trucks Races for two nights, this year the one and only BIG FOOT will be appearing at the fairgrounds.

Sunday August 23rd there will be a Princess Parade and Party starting at 1:30pm  for the first 75 girls’ ages 3 to 9 who register to attend. Registration and attendance to this party does not waive the admission fee to the fair – all admission prices still apply. This Parade & Party invites the registered girls to attend the fair dressed as their favorite Princess. These 75 registered girls and one parent/ guardian will take part in a small walking parade around the fairgrounds and then return to the starting point where they will be able to complete a craft activity provided by our sponsors The Creative Art Store and Victoria Lin Ceramics while waiting for their turn to have a meet & greet with the Ice Queen and Snow Princess.
