Kenton County Fair Board
In 2023 the Kenton County Fair Board Scholarship Committee was developed. The purpose of this committee is to give back to the community while introducing youth of the community to the Fair Board and the behind the scenes that takes place to have a successful fair. Our hopes are that through this process when the youth have become adults they will want to join the Fair Board in order to carry on the tradition of a county fair.
