Hancock County Fair Returns with Tuesday Night Ribbon Cutting

The Hancock County Fair is back after a year off due to the Covid pandemic. The six-day event opens Tuesday night at 7 with a free ribbon cutting ceremony and the crowning of the fair king and queen at the Old Mill Stream Centre. Immediately following will be the dedication of the new Junior Fair building. The fair gets underway, in earnest, with a full slate of entertainment and events on Wednesday.

There are some changes to the fair this year. The biggest of which is the availability of online ticketing. Fair-goers are encouraged to purchase admission tickets, ride passes, and event tickets online ahead of time and have them saved to their mobile device. This will speed the entry process and reduce risk for those working at the gates.
