One month after presenting the annual Carroll County Agricultural Fair, organizers have determined that this year’s renewal was their “biggest and best ever.”

Prior to or during the show, some 463 individuals entered 1,316 exhibits in the various classes.

“We are gaining more entries each year,” said Carol Chevalier, chairman of the Farm Bureau Ladies’ Committee and chairman of exhibits. “The exhibits were reorganized with quilts and table displays rearranged in a more relaxed open atmosphere while being grouped in similar categories. Additionally, this was the second year in which special needs individuals were invited to submit entries. It was rewarding to see the enthusiasm of entrants and the audience to the exhibit displays with ribbons attached.”

Kevin Semones, County Fair chairman and Farmer’s Markets manager, reported, “The 2017 Fair proved to be the biggest and best Fair yet! Our hope and desire is that 2018 be even bigger and better! Furthermore, we really want to say THANK YOU to all our dedicated volunteers and sponsors. Without them, the Fair could never be this successful.”

The Fair offered a new and unique attraction this year – the Hillbilly Pig Races.

“The inaugural races were a huge success,” according to Myra Leonard, coordinator of this event. “The fan experience was fantastic. From Makayla Newman playing the call to the races on her trumpet to Swifty’s solo trek on the track, the fans were treated to a great event. Piglets are already in training for next year’s races.”

Tia Akers, Horse Show chairman, said, “We had 56 horses participate in the show this year, which made it the largest show yet. The entries were of exceptionally good quality with exhibitors of all ages presenting a great show.”

In addition, there were 168 exhibitors in the livestock events with over 311 animals exhibited.

A petting zoo included Peyton, a five-year-old brown Swiss Steer that weighs 1,800 pounds, and a pair of twin Holstein calves.

Over 1,000 school-age students from Carroll, Grayson, and the City of Galax attended agriculture education and ag days at the fair. Students visited different stations focusing on agriculture topics and enjoyed locally grown watermelon served by the farm bureau ladies committee.
