ACTON — York County’s own agricultural fair — the Acton Fair — returns Thursday Aug. 23, and winds down on Sunday afternoon.

Events include a Cruise ‘n Car Show of vintage autos on Thursday, and there is an array of other amusements that day and throughout the weekend, from carnival rides to a horse show on Sunday and the ever popular pig scramble.

As well, there is judging of 4-H oxen and steers, dairy showmanship, steer and ox pulling, a mini tractor pull, the crowning of Miss Acton Fair, a Farmer’s Olympics event and lots of music and fair food.

Acton Fair, in its 157th year, is York County’s only agricultural fair and is dedicated this year to the late Arvid Roberts and the late Lista Staples, both loyal fair supporters and volunteers willing to put their hand to many tasks help make the fair a success.

Acton Fair is on Route 109.
