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.
