Many county fairs are either underway or gearing up to begin. The Siskiyou Golden Fair in Yreka is in full swing. Friday night will have sprint car racing, a rodeo on Saturday, and a destruction derby on Sunday. There is no admission fee on Sunday.
This fair attracts more visitors than in the entire county. They anticipate 53,000 visitors this year, compared to Siskiyou County’s population of 44,000. This is the 153th year of the Siskiyou Golden Fair, but that’s not the only fair happening in our region.
Right now, the Klamath County Fair is also underway through Sunday. The Douglas County Fair is happening through Saturday. On Saturday, the Douglas County Fair will feature a laser show with Pink Floyd music. The Josephine County Fair begins on Tuesday, August 14th.
