Magic and excitement are on its way for the 2022 Clallam County Fair! The carnival is booked. Vendors, merchants, entertainment, sponsors and the lot, are being sought and booked. You heard it right-the 2022 Clallam County Fair is being planned. Clallam County 4H and Clallam County FFA departments are getting ready for the 2022 Clallam County Fair.

The 4H- FFA Pacific Northwest Junior Livestock Auction, will be live at this year’s county fair. 2019 was left as the fair’s 100th fair and for 2020 would have been the 101-county fair with its theme “Blue Ribbon Dreams in Boots and Jeans.” But 2020 and 2021 fairs did not happen, and the theme was left as words on the paper.

So let us introduce the 4H member who submitted the fair theme, Fern Knobel. Fern Knobel is a 16-year-old junior at Port Angeles High School. Fern is in the 4H club, Pure Country, with her 4H projects of rabbits and sheep. She has been involved in 4H for six years.

Fern is active in many school activities, but she particularly enjoys high school sailing, sponsored by the Port Angeles Yacht Club. She is in the running start program and her future education plans are to attend the University of Washington and pursue something in Veterinary Medicine.

When asked why she submitted “Blue Ribbon Dreams in Boots and Jeans”, she said at her family farm she and her family wear boots and jeans and that lent to the theme and the blue ribbon goes along with what is earned and handed out at the Clallam County Fair.

Fern will receive $100, fair passes, and t-shirts for her chosen theme. So here we are 2022 with our fair theme, the beginnings of our fair lineup and now we just need you Aug. 18-21, 2022. You know where we’ll be but just in case you need a reminder, Port Angeles, Washington. So, Save The Date and don’t hesitate. Attend the 2022 Clallam County Fair, and remember, “Blue Ribbon Dreams in Boots and Jeans”. See you there.
