Clark County Fair 2013 - Everywhere you look, there’s fun waiting.

Clark County FairGrowing up in Alaska, my parents would often let me spend a few weeks during the summer at my grandmother’s house in Vancouver, WA. To a girl in her teens, it seemed like bright lights - big city with Portland nearby, especially in comparison to the tiny fishing  town of Juneau.

However, some of my fondest memories involve heading out to the country for the Clark County Fair in Ridgefield. Summer nights with stars overhead, and the twinkling lights of carnival rides, create a special magic that’s tough to beat when you’re a kid. Everywhere you look, there’s fun waiting.

Clark County Fair 2013 in Ridgefield, WA - fun everywhere you look.

Today, August 2nd, is opening day at the Clark County Fair. Gates open this morning at 10 AM, for ten days! There’s plenty of family entertainment too with three stages, big-name entertainment, featured attractions, a kids park, thousands of animals and exhibits, and a giant carnival.

Naturally, you’ll find plenty to eat and drink at the fair. Elephant ears, cotton candy, hot dogs and burgers, hot buttered Clark County Faircorn-on-the cob, and my favorite treat of all, a milk shake at the Clark County Dairy Women’s booth. It’s tough to choose a favorite flavor, they are all so creamy and delicious.

Tickets and more logistics about the Clark County Fair in Ridgefield.

You can purchase tickets online at clarkcofair.com, or at the gate.

One Day Adult (13 & Over)  $10.00(Plus $0.75 Service Fee)

Great Entertainment

I’m long past the teen years and now live in Clark County, WA full-time. However, that doesn’t mean there’s any lack of excitement about a local fair.  It’s still pretty hard to resist a warm summer night with twinkling stars overhead, carnival rides, and the magic of the Clark County Fair. Everywhere you look, there’s fun waiting.

Debb, I've been to Juneau Alaska. It is a small fishing town ... that is why I was there :-D I learned something new about you here ... cool.

From Juneau to the Clark County Fair would be great fun for a girl in her teens.  No wonder you have so many found memories of time at the Fair.

The Clark County Fair 2013 indeed does sound like a ton of fun.  I heard yesterday that the State Fair is gearing up to arrive here next month.  Where has the summer gone???  Oh well we go with the flow and boot scoot to the tunes at the Clark County Fair :)
