Chelsea Community Fair
Everyone in the family will love this country fair Aug. 21-25, 2012, hitting Washtenaw County with animals, tractors, rides, demolition derbies and more
For tons of animals, tractors and all your festival faves, gather the family 'round for the 75th annual Chelsea Community Fair. Plowing through town Aug. 21-25, 2012, this popular annual country style fair brings together community life for a week of demolition derbies, tractor pulls, races and lots more!
Giddy on down to see some local Black Beauties at the Youth Horse Show or check out a farm's array of cows, goats, pigs, sheep, bunnies and other friendly (and fuzzy!) faces. Colors the Clown will be providing plenty of fun-tertainment for the kiddies – plus all their favorite festival rides, games and prizes will be on hand all to enjoy.
Kids can participate in the children's parade tricycle-pull or the interactive Lumberjack Camp, too, after grabbing some classic carnival snacks – including the fair's very own ice cream truck, staffed by (and benefitting) local nonprofits. Plus, browse the many craft exhibits for unique gifts and fun pieces or hop by the bingo tent for a fun round.
Fairgrounds open to the public at noon on Tuesday, with rides running from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. The fair's hours are 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesday to Saturday, with rides and concessions opening at 1 p.m.
Admission to the fair and daylong access to all the activities within the grandstand is $7 for all attendees over the age of 10 (gals get in free Friday before noon!). Weeklong passes are $25, and wristbands for rides are $20.
