Chelsea Community Fair

This annual Washtenaw County fest returns for year 77 to the Chelsea Community Fairgrounds, Aug. 19-23, 2014, with all new activities and events for the whole family

Tractors, parades and carnival rides, oh my! The Chelsea Community Fair returns for year 77, Aug. 19-23, 2014. This action-packed annual event, which takes place at the Chelsea Community Fairgrounds, is bringing home all its traditional activities and attractions once again this year. Featuring some things that are new, classic and even those ol' crowd favorites, this fair has it all covered – and your family should join in all the fun.

A parade on Tuesday evening kicks off the week of events, followed by games like a penny hunt, sack race and other kids activities at night. Although the festival does not start until Tuesday, celebrations begin as early as Sunday with a tractor pull and other exciting activities.

See exhibits in categories like agricultural, antiques, baking, machine sewing, arts and photography – also taking place on Sunday, as well as a ribbon cutting ceremony on Monday. Come back Tuesday for a live horse show and visit with Colors the Clown while waiting for the week's first demolition derby to begin.

Invite your grandma and grandpa for the fun, because Thursday is Senior Day and all visitors 65-plus enter for free. And don't forget to remind your mom and aunts that there will be a discounted $5 entry fee before noon on Friday in honor of Ladies' Day.

Not to mention, every day will feature midway rides, live entertainment and delicious foods for everyone to enjoy.

Pack up the car and head out to Chelsea for this great end-of-summer festival. Event times are as follows:

  • Tuesday: noon-10 p.m.
  • Wednesday-Saturday: 10 a.m.-10 p.m.

Admission prices are $7/adults and free/kids 10 and under. Midway rides cost $20/wristband, and some additional fees may apply for other activities throughout the week.
