• Siskiyou Golden Fair

     

    Put on your thinking cap and be a part of the 2015 Siskiyou Golden Fair. The 2015 theme contest will run September 15 to October 17 and the theme will be selected at the October 21 meeting of the Board of Directors!

    “The Board of Directors are anxiously awaiting community input,” said fair CEO Cliff Munson. “Get your entry in early.”

    Siskiyou County residents, clubs and organizations are eligible to enter one suggested theme for the 2015 Siskiyou Golden Fair. The theme must be six words or less and the name of the fair is not part of the theme. The 2015 theme needs to be “catchy” and usable in fair advertising and promotion. Remember, this theme sets the motif for the construction of feature booths, flower arrangements, cake decorations, and more. Entries must be in the fair office by Friday, October 17, 2014 to be considered eligible. The selected entry will be used in its entirety or as a building block for the 2015 fair theme. (more…)

    Shealynn will receive a $50 gift card from Tri Counties Bank and bragging rights for the next year.

    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.

    “None whatsoever.”

    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…)
