Greene County Fair
The Greene County Fair has been around since 1867. The original site was at the current Waynesburg University Football Field. The fair ran on and off until 1890 when there was no fair. In 1893, E.M. Sayers bought the fair at auction for $6,200.
In the early 1900’s, the Carmichaels fair was advertised as the “Greene County Fair”. In 1911, the fair changed hands once again and they were purchased by R.S. Sayers Farm. This is the current site of the fair.
The fair has continued to run since 1946 and is located in the same place. The Greene County Fair Board organizes the fair and they set the fair for the first full week of August every year.
They offer many competitions during the fair. They have the Fair Queen Contest, Livestock competitions, Home & Garden, and Hot Farm & Farm Stock Tractor Pulls. Other events at the fair include Black Cat Hell Driving Stunt Show, Chaos in Coal Country, and carnival rides and fair food daily.
