On behalf of the entire Alexandria Fair Board we would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone for attending and supporting the 2016 Alexandria Fair and Horse Show! Thanks to folks like you, this year was a huge success. Thousands walked through our gates to enjoy rides, games, concerts, pageants, horse shows, court yard crafts, yummy treats, live stock shows, mounted cowboy shooting, and much much more. Our social media buzz is but a small testament of the positive comments and attention we have received. Thank you to all of our sponsors and hard working volunteers for making 2016 another year for nostalgia and remembrance. Thanks to your support, we are able to continue producing world class fairs.
