A new chapter for the Monroe County Fair & Recreation Association

We are pleased to confirm the sale of the Dome property in Henrietta to the partners represented by the 2695 East Henrietta Holdings LLC, and we wish them well with their future plans.  We look forward to being able to focus solely on growing the Monroe County Fair in support of our mission to build our community through supporting its youth, agriculture, and technology.

Another beautiful day at the fair

The 4-H kids are showing their adorable alpacas, the sun is shining yet again – it’s another beautiful day at the fair! We’ve already crowned the Queen of Show dairy cow and awarded the Grand Champion meat goat, and the open-to-all alpaca show will follow the 4-H show at 5pm. The Darcy & John Country Duo are on stage right now, with Johnny Bauer taking the stage at 6:30pm. Even the weather is cooperating – they’ve taken the rain out of the forecast for the rest of the afternoon! Come on out and enjoy a gorgeous summer evening at the Monroe County Fair!
