Board members of the Scott County Fair Association are planning several grandstand activities sure to draw crowds, provided the weather cooperates.

Plans were outlined at the Fair Board's meeting on March 8.

The 2016 Scott County Fair will be held from Sunday, July 10, to Saturday, July 16.

The “Come to the Fair” Parade is scheduled for the afternoon of that Sunday.

Events already planned for that evening include the 2016 Little Miss and Little Master of Scott County competition and the 2016 Miss Scott County Fair Queen Pageant. Both will again be held at McClain Hall at Scottsburg High School.

At the fairgrounds grandstand, staff of the Brownstown Speedway will offer a night of racing.

Monday and Tuesday nights, July 11 and 12, are still open on the grandstand schedule.

Mini-stock and pure stock enduros are scheduled Wednesday night, July 13. Moto-cross action will take place on Thursday night, July 14, followed by the popular demolition derby on Friday, July 15.

On Saturday, July 16, the Battle of the Bluegrass truck and tractor pull will take place at the grandstand.

Board member Todd Richey reported that the Battle of Bluegrass promoter is attempting to develop a television series based on truck and tractor pulls. The promoter would also like to use the fairgrounds for a two-day end-of-the-season championship event, he advised.

This information was taken under advisement until the Fair Board's next meeting on April 12.

The board talked to Megan Voyles, Extension Educator, about conditions in the oldest swine facility and where poultry will be exhibited. Renting a tent for 4-H poultry entries was considered and also taken under advisement until more information can be obtained.

Voyles said there are 65 4-H'ers with rabbit projects, so possibly 600 rabbits could be entered this year at the fair. A total of 58 4-H'ers have swine projects, and there will be 21 horses. More animal entry numbers will be firmed up after April 24, Voyles related.

An alternate group to collect trash daily at the fairgrounds was discussed. The board was told the local football league does not want to do that service this year.

Other ideas floated that evening included a car show on the grounds on Sunday.

Merchants who have had booths in 2015 will soon be contacted to renew those spaces. More information can be obtained by visiting the website at or attending the next meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 12, at the former Saddle Club building on the fairgrounds.
