Every County has a desire to have great events for their community, and Craig County is no different. The Craig County Fairground Association is asking locals to contact them with their individual creative and unique ideas.
From young to old, events have been planned at the Fairgrounds to include; ballgames, church functions, auctions, music festivals, car shows, coon dog events, horse and animal shows, the ever popular Demolition Derby’s and the Kids Power Wheels Derby to name a few.
“Our future goals for The Fairgrounds Association are to have new events to come and hopefully inspire some new ideas,” said board member Nicole Dudding who is responsible for advertising and activities. Four other individuals serve on the Board: President Bill Frazier, Vice President BJ Oliver and Secretary Missy Frazier.
The Board invites the community to volunteer at upcoming events and attend meetings which take place on the second Wednesday of each month at 3:15 p.m. “There will not be an August meeting due to parent orientation for the new school year,” Dudding said.
The scheduled upcoming events were listed at the July meeting: Demolition Derby’s at 7 p.m. (Aug. 4,13, and Oct. 20) and the Coon Hunters Field Trail, Beach Show and Nite Hunt (Nov. 16-17). An annual youth event is also scheduled to take place later in the year.
The main topic of the July meeting was the upcoming Demolition Derby’s, which now includes a variety of heats such as big cars, compact cars, powder puff and kids power wheels.
Board members shared that many suggestions have been made to add a small car stock class. They were all happy to announce that this competition will be added in the October derby.

Said Dudding of the Fairground Association, “We want to be active in the community and provide fun, entertaining events for families and help our community in any way we can.”
