Louisville – Back in 1930, it began as a way for a small community to raise some money for a good cause.

Now 76 years later, the Fairdale Community Fair has become a tradition.

“I would like for everyone to come out and see all the good things going on in our community,” says Councilwoman Vicki Welch (D) 13. “This is a great event for the family.”

The Fairdale Community Fair is a two day event beginning on Friday, September 22nd. On Saturday, the highlight of the Fair is a parade from Fairdale High School to the Fairdale Elementary School.

Arts and crafts along with live entertainment are wide range of activities will get underway over the weekend. But there will also be traditional events that many are use to if anyone has ever been to a county fair.

In the Playtorium will be a Homemaker Display. It will feature the best in home canning, quilts, needlepoint, plants, wood working and more. Ribbons will be offered.

“Fall is a good time to get together and see old friends and neighbors and just have a nice relaxing time,” says Welch. “But it also is a chance for everyone to learn a little bit of history of Fairdale and the good our community does in Metro Louisville.”
