Siskyou County Fair expected to draw crowd of 50,000

Yreka, Calif. — The Siskiyou County Fair is gearing up for a crowd of thousands. The fair has been running since Wednesday, but the weekend is expected to draw even more crowds.

In 2011, California stopped providing funding for county fairs. The Siskiyou Golden Fairground’s CEO Cliff Munson said the community has stepped up to bridge that gap.

“All these exhibits that you see are all from our local community,” Munson said. “It’s just great that they love their fair.”

With classic fair rides, arts and crafts, and entertainment packed in each day, organizers are expecting around 50,000 people to funnel through by Sunday.
