The 2016 theme contest will run just three short weeks - October 6 to October 20 and the theme will be selected at the October 20th meeting of the Board of Directors. “Fair planning always starts with the theme contest and the Board and Staff are always excited to review and pick the new theme each year, it sets the whole fair in motion!”
Siskiyou County residents, clubs and organizations are eligible to enter one suggested theme for the 2016 Siskiyou Golden Fair! The theme must be six words or less and the name of the fair is not part of the theme. The 2016 theme needs to be “catchy” and usable in fair advertising and promotion.

The Siskiyou County Fair began as an agricultural show in 1859 in Fort Jones, moved to Yreka in 1867 and became the 10th District Agricultural Association in 1926, at the current location on Fairlane Rd. The 10th D.A.A. hosted the Siskiyou County Fair until 1952 when a second fair was established in Siskiyou County, the Tulelake-Butte Valley Fair. The name was changed at that time to the “Siskiyou County Fair and Paul Bunyan Festival.” In 1972, the current name “The Siskiyou Golden Fair” was selected by the Board of Directors and that name is still used today. For 156 years, our traditions, heritage, culture and history have on display through our many and varied exhibits, contests and entertainment opportunities. Share in our showcase and enjoy “Fun for the Whole Herd” at the 2015 Siskiyou Golden Fair August 12th–16th.
