The Kemp­ton Fair – the one you re­mem­ber from years ago, start­ing in 1957 – is alive and well and liv­ing in beau­ti­ful Kemp­ton, Berks County. The Kemp­ton Fair Com­mit­tee seeks spon­sors, ven­dors and vol­un­teers for the 2017 Kemp­ton Fair.

Spon­sored by the Kemp­ton Com­mu­nity Cen­ter, the 2017 Fair is set for June 15, 16 and 17 at Kemp­ton Com­mu­nity Cen­ter, 83 Com­mu­nity Cen­ter Drive, Kemp­ton. The re­fur­bished event brings new en­ergy and new di­rec­tion, but with more of the old-timey feel of yes­ter­year. The “Kemp­ton Coun­try Fair” of re­cent years, an or­ga­ni­za­tion sep­a­rate from KCC, has changed its name and lo­ca­tion.

For this event, we’re bring­ing back all the great stuff fair-go­ers love, such as three evenings of trac­tor and truck power pulls and drags; pop­u­lar mu­si­cal tal­ents Crazy Hearts, Scott Mar­shall & Mar­shall’s High­way, and the Han­nah Vi­o­let Trio; live­stock ex­hi­bi­tions; bak­ing con­tests; fire­works; in­ter­ac­tive at­trac­tions for the young­sters, such as Mid­dle-earth Chil­dren’s Theater; and much more. Then there’s the food.

And per­haps you will want to take part in the Kemp­ton’s Got Tal­ent com­pe­ti­tion on Thurs­day evening. There is a 13-19 age group and a 20-and-above age group. Au­di­tions are on June 3rd at KCC. On Fri­day evening, get your­self up for the Wil­lie Nel­son LookA­like Con­test. There will be prizes for age groups and eras. Wil­lie Nel­son ap­peared at the Kemp­ton Fair on June 17, 1967.

Ad­mis­sion is $8 a per­son on Thurs­day and Fri­day evenings. Ages 10 and un­der are free. On Satur­day ad­mis­sion is $10 a car­load, one per­son per seat­belt.
