The 2014 Siskiyou Golden Fair Diaper Derby was an exciting come-from-behind-outta-nowhere win in the final stretch. Shealynn Rose Thompson, daughter of Amanda Vaughn (pictured above), was quickest down the carpet to capture the 2014 crown.
Shealynn will receive a $50 gift card from Tri Counties Bank and bragging rights for the next year.
“You just can’t beat a good diaper derby,” said fair CEO, Cliff Munson. “There is electricity in the air when families gather to cheer on their young contestants!” (more…)Share on Facebook

While there have been some rumors that the Siskiyou Golden Fair is, or may be, canceled, that is not the case. A text to fair CEO Cliff Munson asking if there was any truth to the rumors, brought this reply.
Everything is on track to start as planned, according to Munson.
“The 2014 Siskiyou Golden Fair has the carnival setting up and the barns are decorated for ‘The Spirit of Siskiyou.’ Fine Arts and Home Arts competitive exhibits have been judged and the displays are set for our opening on
Wednesday August 6 at 3:00 pm. The Siskiyou Golden Fair Board of Directors and staff have our Siskiyou community in our thoughts. Come on out and catch the Spirit of Siskiyou.” (more…)

Each year the Siskiyou Golden Fair honors an individual or organization that has gone above and beyond supporting our fairgrounds. For 2014, Home Arts Department Supervisor Margret Atwood was selected by the 10th D.A.A. Board of Directors to receive the Western Fairs Association “Blue Ribbon Award” for her 33 years of commitment and dedication supporting “The Sprit of Siskiyou.”
Starting with the Miss Siskiyou Contest in 1981, moving to the Home Arts Building in 1989 and culminating with eight years as the Home Arts Supervisor, Margret has dedicated thousands of hours to the cause. Margret and the Gamma Pi Sorority take pride in turning the Armory building into one of the premier home arts displays in the state each year. From the extensive quilt display to clothing and textiles, the home arts building is one of the jewels of the Siskiyou Golden Fair.
“Margret announced that 2014 will be her last year as Home Arts Building Supervisor in early May,” said fair CEO Cliff Munson. “Please go by the home arts building this year and thank her for all her support over the years.”
Traditionally, Margret and her husband Ken have taken the last Sunday shift of the fair in the Home Arts Building and this year it will be a celebration of 33 years of service and more fair food meals than Ken can count. (more…)Share on Facebook
