Wayne County Fair
July 25th – 31st
Few things in life can last for one hundred years and continue to make life changing impacts on so many people. For over one century the Wayne County Fair has influenced area youth with valuable hands-on opportunities and has provided them with the skills needed to become competent, caring, and contributing citizens.
It is the mission of the Wayne County Fair to provide a wide variety of activities that entertain, educate, and inform fairgoers. The Wayne County Fair Board is planning an outstanding schedule of activities for the 2017 fair. This fair promises to have something for everyone while providing a safe atmosphere for patrons. Come enjoy the fun!!!
Corydon Old Settlers
August 10th – August 12th
One of the first recorded meeting of Corydon Old Settlers was held on August 20, 1887. For an individual to be classified as an “Old Settler” at this event, the person had to be a resident of Wayne County for twenty years. There were 253 people present who signed the book on that date declaring that they were Old Settlers. A public collection was taken up to pay the expenses of $3.78 and a contribution of $2.25 was presented by Lewis Miles.
The Corydon Old Settlers celebration is held the second Saturday of each year and has officially been in existence for well over 100 years. In fact, 2017 will mark the 134th year that residents and visitors will gather to celebrate the town of Corydon.
The Old Settlers Committee is planning an event that you won’t want to miss, so mark your calendars for August 10th – 12th.
