Miss Grundy County Fair Queen 2016

As the 2016 Miss Grundy County Fair Queen, I’d like to take this opportunity to officially welcome you to the 113th annual Grundy County Fair. No matter what age you are or interests you have, the Grundy County Fair truly offers something for everyone.  Not only are we equipped with all of your fair favorites such as livestock shows, carnival rides, and no shortage of delicious food, but we also uniquely offer daily children and family activities, racing, truck and tractor pulls, a dazzling concert and fireworks display on July 3rd, and my personal favorite, the doughnut eating contest. I will never forget the amazing week I spent at the fair last year, and I can assure you your family will make memories that will last a lifetime.


Being named the 2016 Miss Grundy County Fair Queen has been one of the greatest adventures I’ve ever had the opportunity to take part in.  Alongside my Junior Miss, Logan Gossett, and my Little Miss, Gracie Nelson, I was able to participate in almost every fair activity, as well as attend multiple other county fairs and pageants. Throughout my year, I was also able to represent Grundy county through radio interviews, the corn festival parade, Queen’s Day at the State fair, and most notably, compete in the Illinois County Fair Queen Pageant with 70 other fair queens. I’d like to thank everyone who made this year possible including my pageant directors and the fair board. Without them, this fair would not be possible. I would also like to take a moment to acknowledge the many years of service given to us by our previous fair board president, Burdette Carter.  Although he is no longer with us, we won’t forget the contributions he made to the fair, and the passion with which he served. And once again, thank you to the current Board of Directors, who work tirelessly to ensure that the Grundy county fair is fun and inviting for all who attend. With that being said, welcome to the Grundy County Fair, and I hope you have a week full of fun!
