Dear Members,

 

The Otsego County Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce The Otsego County Fair is ready to open July 29 thru August 3, 2014.  Festivities will begin on Monday night July 28th before the fair begins at 6 pm The Otsego County Chamber of Commerce will conduct a ribbon cutting ceremony at the newly renovated Fair Store and Museum.  The new Fair Store and Museum will feature Otsego County Fair logo items as well as other items need by fairgoers.  The museum area features memorabilia items ranging from fair books, ribbons, photos and posters.   Anyone with “old” Otsego County Fair items may donate them to the Museum area.  Light refreshments will follow the ribbon cutting.  Although the fair will not be completely set up there will be opportunities to preview the fair.  The 18th Annual Otsego County Fair Hymn Sing & Special Music will start at 6:30 pm at the Grandstand.

 

 

We invite our members to drop off coupons, marketing brochures or marketing items to the Chamber office this week to be displayed and distributed at the Chamber booth during the fair this week.  This is a great opportunity for the Chamber to help our members and great marketing opportunity for your business.
