Established in 1945, the Damascus Community Fair is a tradition of agricultural heritage for young and old in the Damascus Community.
A fair with an exhibit hall full of exhibits from foods, flowers, photography, art, handicraft to woodworking; barns of animals, poultry and grains: educational displays, entertainment and good food – all with no admission nor parking fees!!!
Damascus Lions has offered free popcorn to the fair attendees for past 17 years, handing out approximately 2000 bags each year.
We serve students on Friday morning as the schools bus bring them in to tour the fair.
In the afternoon day care, young and old, visit the fair. Friday night, the public embark upon the fair grounds for the various activities; one being the Ice Cream Making Contest which the Lions are competing with a team and live entertainment.
Saturday dawns with a Fun Run for kids and then animal shows and entertainment along with good food from the fire department members.
In the evening is the Cake and Animal Auction which proves to be very profitable as well as interesting.
Sunday brings forth more animal shows, the Grandparents Program and closing of the fair.
A huge tent on the grounds houses vendors sharing their wares or introducing you to their services.
All in All, there is something for everyone and beyond that – It Is All Free!!!
