The Marion County Fair’s theme is “Meet You at the Marion County Fair,” inspired by the idea that the fair is a gathering place for all in the community. From friends to family, competitors to exhibitors, 4-H members to volunteers… all can call the fair a home away from home. This feeling of summertime fun and nostalgia is evoked in a song entitled “County Fair” performed by Indiana based artists, the Elms. We use this song as a background to our radio and TV commercials as well as our online promotional videos.
Meet You at the Marion County Fair!
