New Book Features the Clarke County Fair

The Clarke County Ruritan Club just published a new coffee-table book featuring nearly 200 pages of photographs from the last decade of the Clarke County Fair. Local photographers Douglas Graham, Bonnie Jacobs and Pam Lettie culled through 10 years of images to pick their best photos for the book, titled “Moments from the Clarke County Fair.”

Captured in its pages are memories of the pageants, the demolition derby, the 4-H animals, the pig scramble, the Berryville Rascals, the rodeo, the marvelous musical performances and more. Area residents are bound to see people they know in its pages.

Softcover books are available for $30 each. To order your copy, call Fair Director Bill Milleson at 540-955-3755 or 540-955-2530 or email

The book will also be sold through local retailers and at the Fair. The photo-book will be available for sale in the Fair Ticket office all week of the fair starting Sun, Aug. 14th. Quantities are limited.   The 2011 Fair runs August 14-20 at the Clarke County Ruritan Fairgrounds in Berryville, VA.
