Line-up set for the next Yamhill County Fair
The Yamhill County Fair and Rodeo, which is celebrating being the longest-running event of its kind in the state, will be unveiled this year from July 29 through Aug. 1 with theme of "City Lights, Country Nights."
Organizers said the event will include three days of country music, the rodeo, a demolition derby race and rock music, as well as a free park-and-ride project that was initiated three years ago.
Seventy-percent of proceeds from the fair and rodeo go toward programs for county 4-H and FFA groups, which often participate in livestock competitions at the event.
The format for the fair will be as it was in 2019, with free admission for kids until 3 p.m. each day and $6 for oldsters on Senior's Day on Thursday.
Otherwise, admission for adults is $10 and $5 for kids age 5 to 12. Season tickets are $20 for adults and $7.50 for kids.
