Country music’s Gretchen Wilson to headline Wood County Fair

This July 30 to August 6, 2012, the Wood County Fair continues its tradition as one of the top fairs in the state of Ohio with another exciting week of special events, competitions and entertainment. This year, the fair features Grammy, ACM, CMA and AMA Award winner Gretchen Wilson on Saturday, August 4. 

Wilson’s first single, “Redneck Woman,” spent six weeks at #1; her debut album, Here For The Party, sold more than five million copies; and she toured to large and raucous crowds around the world. Her second CD, All Jacked Up, rode enthusiastic reviews to platinum status as Gretchen’s accomplishments continued to stack up. Her third, One of the Boys, solidified her position as one of contemporary country's most original and multifaceted female artists, a woman in whom ambition and ability come together in every aspect of her career.

This year’s fair features the Wood County Youth Parade; Harness Racing; Cowboy Mounted Shooting Demonstration; Car and Combine Demolition Derbies; the National Championship Horse, Mule, and Pony Pull; a Cheerleading Competition where a portion of admission will go to the Cheer for the Cure charity; and many other daily attractions, including livestock shows; fair food, games, and rides; wood carving demonstrations, a fine art show and various performances by local music and talent acts. It’s summer fun, close to home!
