It is one of the best community fairs in the Commonwealth of Kentucky and this weekend, the 79th Fairdale Community Fair will get underway with the traditional parade, fun, music, food and a Health Fair sponsored by Councilwoman Vicki Aubrey Welch (D-13)

“This is one of the best ways to see the spirit of a community,” says Welch. “There is nothing like an old fashion, fun filled fair to get out and talk with neighbors and friends.”

The 79th Annual Fairdale Fair will get underway on Friday, September 18th and Saturday, September 19th. Among the highlights is the traditional parade on Saturday at noon. This year’s theme is "The Greatest Show in Town". Grand Marshal is Jim Caskey of Fairdale-McDaniel Funeral Home who has been a great presence in Fairdale for 21 years.

“Once again I will be partnering with the Greater Louisville Medical Society for our Community Health Fair in the Fairdale Playtorium,” says Welch. “The Health Fair is a great way to get free screenings and learn medical information that is important to a healthy way of life.”

This year’s Fair will also feature a 5k Run, the Chicken and Ham dinner, the Fairdale Idol Karaoke Contest, a Car Show, a wide variety of music and Fiesta Rides.

“I would like to thank all of the volunteers who make the fair a great success,” says Welch. “We also owe special thanks to the Fairdale Fair Board, Division 3 of the Louisville Metro Police Department, the Fairdale Fire Dept., Jefferson Co. Sheriff’s Dept, and the Jefferson Co. Attorney office (DUI Diversion cleanup crew). Their assistance is always welcomed and greatly appreciated.”
