Tulelake-Butte Valley Fair is “Keeping the Dream Alive”

Submitted article

Keeping the Dream Alive” will be this year’s theme of the Tulelake-Butte Valley Fair as it celebrates its’ 61st anniversary, September 6-9.

The theme of “Keeping the Dream Alive” is very relevant and reminiscent of the fair’s uncertain long-term future as this year marks the first year that the Tulelake-Butte Valley Fair will not receive any operational funding from the State of California. The eliminated state funding accounted for over 42% of the Tulelake-Butte Valley Fair’s annual budget, leaving the fair a $274,000 funding shortfall from previous years. The fair will continue to seek new revenue sources throughout the year as well as cut year round operational costs in order to promote a sustainable future and hold the annual Tulelake-Butte Valley Fair each year following Labor Day weekend.

This year’s fair will provide all the fair attendees a chance to join in the celebration of “Keeping the Dream Alive” by contributing to the “Pay What You Can” admission while visiting the fair. This admission policy allows the fair attendee the choice of donating an admission fee, but does not require a fee for admission into the fair.

The Tulelake-Butte Valley Fair has developed many great traditions and it is the goal of the fair to continue to preserve and build upon that rich heritage. More than ever, it is the fair’s goal to provide the people of the surrounding communities an enjoyable, welcoming and family oriented atmosphere throughout the entire year while visiting the fairgrounds and museum.

Lions withstand Pirate bombardment to win 8-4


The Phoenix Pirates had a couple of big blasts, but it was the host Etna Lions that won Monday’s game, 8-4.

The Pirates took a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning on a 2-run bomb.

Etna responded with three runs in the bottom half of the opening frame. Colby Rimmer led off the inning with a walk, and Nick Hansen followed with a stroll to first base. An errant pick off attempt by the Phoenix pitcher allowed both runners to move up 90 feet. With one down, Tanner Schaefer reached on an error. Rimmer scored on the play, and Hansen went to third base. Schaefer stole second, but Hansen was caught stealing, making it two away. A double by Nick Meyer plated Schaefer. Meyer went to third base on a passed ball, and scored on a single by Preston Munson, giving Etna a 3-0 lead. (more…)
