WESTPORT - The Essex County Agricultural Society has set the 2011 Essex County Fair dates as Aug. 10-14. They have been busy planning the fair.
The Ag Society sent several members to the New York Agricultural Fairs convention in Rochester. They went looking for some new entertainment and updates on Agricultural Awareness programs and fair regulations. It was a packed weekend of workshops, entertainment and brainstorming with other county fair boards.
One of the new shows will be Allan Scott as Tim McGraw and band coming to the grandstand on Aug. 11. at 7 pm.
The Agricultural Society is also planning a benefit weekend May 13-15 for the American Cancer Society and Fair Buildings improvement. The weekend will be filled with a Music Festival, Car Show and Motor Cycle Rally. There will be vendors, parts swap and craft show.
