Troy Fair will be holding its opening ribbon cutting ceremony on Sunday at 7:00 PM located under the pavilion in the lower meadow. Immediately following the opening ceremony, we will be hosting the annual Troy Fair Queen Pageant. The contestants will be introduced by the Master of Ceremonies, Shane Wilbur and escorted by their parents or guardian(s). They will be judged prior to introduction by a panel of 3 judges on a prepared essay, a personal interview, and knowledge of the Troy Fair and how agriculture plays an important role in our community. Their poise, appearance, and professionalism are essential to the crowning of the 2021 Queen.
Once crowned, the queen will be a representative of the Troy Fair as well as those chosen as 1st and 2nd alternates. We are encouraging all contestants to stay throughout the week, to be ambassadors of the fair. Their duties will be abundant. Welcoming fair goers, making daily announcements, participating in daily activities, escorting dignitaries through the fair, and helping in the fair office, will be just some of the responsibilities expected of the queen and her court.
Throughout the year, the queen and her court will promote the fair by attending functions at area schools, speak at special interest meetings, parades, do local radio announcements, and various events in the county. The queen will represent the Troy Fair at the annual State Fair convention in January, 2022 at the Hershey Lodge and Convention Center in Hershey, PA. This is a three day convention and is the financial responsibility of the Troy Fair for the queen and her parents/chaperone only.
