Summer in Grays Harbor County brings thoughts of family fun, games and rides, the aroma of outdoor cooking, and visions of a variety of farm animals. It is fair time. The Grays Harbor County Fair is a summer tradition. Located in Elma, fair goers travel from Grays Harbor and beyond to celebrate on August 10 – 14. The Grays Harbor County Fair strives to showcase the best of the county’s agriculture, art and industry. Yet this small county fair is perhaps best known for headliner quality music acts attracting attendees throughout the state.
“It is very important for us to bring in top quality entertainment and to offer something special to the people of Grays Harbor at an affordable price,” says Grays Harbor County Fair Manager, Mike Bruner. “We are unique in that we offer the traditional fair attractions with rides, games and fair food, but we are one of a kind in that we are a small fair that offers big-time entertainment.”
“Not many fairs our size offer the headliner quality music acts that we have been able to bring in for many years and have become known for.” Bruner adds, “In addition to our amazing musicians, we also offer smaller stage entertainment with a variety of comedians and acts. There is a little bit for everyone at our fair.”
Headlining concerts this year feature Brothers Osborne and Tanya Tucker. Grammy Award nominees the Brothers Osborne are best known for their hit singles “Stay a Little Longer” and “Rum.” The country-rock siblings started their musical journey during household jam sessions and now claim to be carving their own path in country music with an old school rock approach that features a singer and guitar playing duo.
