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 Chaos in Coal Country, carnival rides and fair food daily.

Our exhibits include rooms showing what life was like for those that lived in the Poor Farm, as well as period Georgian and Victorian Rooms that illustrate what life was like throughout the 19th Century. We also feature a large Native American Collection that educates visitors on over 10,000 years of regional history and the first Americans.
The Greene County Historical Society Museum also has a large Agricultural Barn that is available for rentals, as well as a complete and operational 10th century print shop, and several cabins. The steam locomotive, Second Number 4, is in the train shed and once serviced the Waynesburg and Washington Railroad.

High Point Raceway was established in 1976 by brothers Jack and Carol Holbert. They contacted race promoter Dave Coombs hoping that they could build a motocross track on their family farm. Coombs did break ground on the track and later, after the Maico Factory Racing team visited and gave their feedback, the track underwent renovations. Since then, the basic layout has remained the same, with the only changes being made within the existing facility.
It is one of the premier motocross racing facilities on the national circuit. High Point hosts rounds of the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship and the Rocky Mountain ATV/MC AMA Loretta Lynn Area Qualifier.
There might not be a better place to see the grandeur of the full display of the sport of motocross than Greene County’s High Point Raceway. This track weaves its way around a deep valley, treating the riders to constant elevation changes. From the slippery off-camber corners to the high-speed runs to and from the valley floor, no section of this track is completely flat, which makes it a true challenge and fun racetrack. But what makes it tough for the athletes makes it great for the spectators, because several vantage points atop the valley offer full views of the track below. Further, High Point’s jumps were engineered to sit right in front of the main spectator areas, letting fans get close while they watch the riders go big. Some call it moto theater—and it’s a show filled with ups and downs, twists and turns.

The first Jacktown Fair happened October 3-4 in 1866. The fair has a rich long history. Events have changed over the years at the fair, but the first fair included many competitions, like livestock, needlework, farm machinery and horse racing. Today’s fair still includes the different competitions, but has added others over the years like truck and tractor pulls, rides and motocross races.
Some historical firsts have happened at the Jacktown Fair. They were one of the first in the area to offer a night fair. Gas lamps were installed at the fairgrounds in the 1920’s. Then, in 1939 the gas lamps were replaced by electric ones. The fair also featured a wedding in 1932.
In 1946, the horse races ended at the Jacktown Fair. They were replaced by the popular horse pulls.
The fair celebrated their 100th year in 1965. Come see the rich 150 plus year history at the Jacktown Fair, because “You can’t die happy until you have been to the Jacktown fair.” For more information on the fair visit www.jacktownfair.org.
