“The 2019 Robertson County Fair is dedicated to REBEKAH LEMLEY. Rebekah was called to serve others which she did through memberships in
local community organizations. She was a 4-H volunteer leader for 17 years after being an active club member for 9 years. She coached state winning dairy products judging teams, chaperoned educational programs & trips, and supported the annual 4-H Congress Pageant. Rebekah was a volunteer for the Robertson County Fair for 21 years, serving as a department superintendent for Photography & the Pet Show. She was President of the Cross Plains FCE Club and was also elected as the Secretary of the countywide family and consumer education clubs. Her volunteering spirit and
enthusiastic personality will be greatly missed by the Robertson County Fair.”
-Trent Cobb, President
The Robertson County Fair Association is a non-profit organization that is completely self-supporting and is run solely by volunteers. Since its establishment in 1938, the Robertson County Fair Association has celebrated all things Robertson County by promoting agriculture, education, and community involvement through quality entertainment in a family-friendly environment.
As a non-profit organization, the Fair Association serves as an advocate for the community through its commitment to preserving the fairgrounds, continuing our annual county fair, as well as providing a variety of entertainment and programs through our many other events.
On that note, they would like to remind everyone that the Robertson County Fair is not just the carnival rides. The Robertson County Fair is everything including the carnival. It’s the arena events, the entertainment at the stage, all the entries from locals (i.e. Baking, crafts, art, photography, canning, tobacco, etc…). It’s about our community coming together. It’s about the 4-H, FFA and FCCLA kids being proud of the work they have done and showcasing the items and animals they have worked hard at creating or raising. So please stop in the Main Exhibit Building and check out all their hard work, they would really appreciate it. Check out all the agricultural events listed below
