“A County Fair with a Western Flair” – Redheaded Blackbelt

This is a press release from the Humboldt County Fair:

The Humboldt County Fair has announced their planned fair dates for the 2021 Humboldt County Fair.  If all goes well with reopening plans, the Fair will be held starting Wednesday, August 18th and running through Sunday, August 29, 2021.  The Theme of the fair was chosen at the last Board meeting, “A County Fair with a Western Flair.”  All phases of the fair are in the planning stages including Horseracing, Carnival, Vendors, Exhibits and Livestock.

In an effort to secure more horses to run during the fair, there is currently a “Horses to Humboldt” GoFundMe page set up to help horses make the trip to Ferndale.  It’s been a tough year for horses too as they have not been able to run races.  Over the years, the cost for horse owners to travel, stall, feed, and insure their horses has continually gone up.  The campaign is an effort to keep the local tradition alive of making heart-warming memories in Ferndale during the sunny days at the fair enjoying the horse races with friends and family by offering incentives to horse owners to attend.  The “Horses to Humboldt” GoFundMe page can be found on the Humboldt County Fair’s Facebook page, or you can contact the fairgrounds office directly if you want to donate.

The Fair is also looking for Vendors who would like to sell and promote their products and services in our Commercial Building during the fair.  Applications for commercial Vendors can be found on the HCF website https://www.humboldtcountyfair.org, by emailing [email protected], or by calling the Fair office at (707) 786-9511.  

For more information about the fair, check for progress updates on their website, https://humboldtcountyfair.org/  or follow Humboldt County Fair on Facebook!   We are looking forward to an exciting 2021 “County Fair with a Western Flair.”
