Wow! It’s hard to believe that it’s almost fair time here in Pemberville. This year is going to be extra special as we celebrate 75 Great Years of the Pemberville Free Fair! Stop and think how many volunteers have helped with the fair over the years … how many flower arrangements have been made for the Annual Flower Show, how many pigs have been caught as a part of the Swine Scramble, how many youth have participated in the Kiddie Parade, how many acts have performed on the main stage and how many elephant ears have been consumed at the Pemberville Free Fair. This four day family fun event that we call the Pemberville Free Fair has a rich history dating back to its inception in 1935. After several years, it was discontinued, until its rebirth in 1948. The fair has remained a strong family tradition, thanks to the many volunteers and sponsors who work hard each year to bring us this summer spectacular. The cover of this year’s fair book features some fun photos of past fairs, the following pages are filled with all of this year’s happenings, along with all of our advertisers/sponsors. We hope that you will support our advertisers and take time to thank our sponsors and volunteers who make it all happen. We want to extend a special invite to each and every one of you as this year’s festivities will begin with a fabulous Opening Ceremony on Wednesday evening and conclude with a special Closing Ceremony on Saturday night. While you are in town, take time to view this year’s History/Memorabilia display commemorating the fair’s rich heritage.

Mark your calendars, August 14th - 17th 2019. We hope to see you here in Pemberville, as we celebrate 75 Great Years! By the way, Thanks for the Memories!
