The Delaware County Fair runs from September 14-21, 2019, and features The Little Brown Jug on September 19.
There is plenty of entertainment scheduled for the fair, including concerts, lots of dog events, magic shows, and Saturday Night Fireworks. You can also enjoy the Eating contests, Demolition Derby, Truck and Tractor Pulls, Motorsports, and more, plus fantastic food stands, exhibitors, and amusement rides.
But before the fair starts, don’t miss the All Horse Parade in Delaware on Sunday, September 8, 2019. One of the largest and most unique, non-motorized parades east of the Mississippi. We have thousands of spectators in attendance, and our parade is a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate our community pride. Our Horse Parade has over 140 Units, including hundreds of horses, mules, donkeys and bands parading through our town.
The parade is always the Sunday preceding the opening of the Delaware County Fair. The parade steps off each year promptly at 3 pm from the main gate of the Delaware County Fairgrounds onto Pennsylvania Avenue, and is 3 miles in length.
The fair gates are open from 8 a.m. – 9 p.m. daily, with amusement rides from 11 a.m. – 10 p.m.
