After a hiatus of 40 years the Morgan County Fair was reborn in Berkeley Springs, W.Va. The Morgan County Fair prides itself on promoting Morgan County and its citizens. Our motto is "A Celebration of Morgan County." Where most fairs have carnival rides and a fairway, the Morgan County Fair brings a down home atmosphere to this two day event. Without a fair grounds the event takes place on the campus of Berkeley Springs High School. Inside the school building are displays of organizations, businesses and crafts people plying their wares. Out of doors on the school grounds can be found Jackson's Mill History on the Road, crafts people, food vendors, Farm Bureau Farm Olympics, kids games and music throughout the day. On Saturday in the school auditorium the Morgan County 4-H holds it annual cake auction. The auction raises money for 4-H'ers to participate in county and state camps and allows members the opportunity to take part in county events without spending money out of their families pockets.
The Morgan County Fair starts on the Saturday before with Irish Road Bowling and a 5K Run at Cacapon State Park. Don't know what Irish Road Bowling is? Stop by and try it, you will be hooked. Physical exercise you won't realize you are doing. On Friday before the Fair, Morgan County Partnership and Morgan County Fair presents a Young Artist in the Park Art Show & Entertainment in downtown Berkeley Springs State Park. And on Saturday these artists have a youth market at the Fair. Have you ever seen a decorated fruit or veggie. We have a kids contest for that too. We have quilters, rug hookers and a very short video contest. On Sunday of the fair is the annual People's Dog Show. Dogs strut their stuff and make their owners look good. This year the Community Educational Outreach Service will have a scone and bar cookies contest with the entries for sale throughout the day. Morgan Countians show their talents with judged entries of baked goods, handiwork, wood work, garden plants, flowers and photography to name a few. Also, do you have an "Ugly Lamp"? Remember grandma's hats, gloves and purses? We have a displays for you. And to top off the event of the year the Annual Fireworks. Best in town!
The 2010 Morgan County Fair takes place beginning Saturday, July 24 with the Irish Road Bowling and 5K Run Walk, continues on Friday, July 30 in the Berkeley Springs State Park and on Saturday, July 31 and Sunday, August 1 at the fair proper at Berkeley Springs High School.
