If you would like a chance at the Miss. Rockingham County Fair crown, you better hustle. The deadline for the Junior, Senior, and Mrs. Rockingham County Fair is August 3rd by 6:30 p.m. The deadline for the Miss. and Master Rockingham County Fair is August 5th by 5 p.m. One of the favorite children's events at the fair is the ride all night for one price. "We have three different times, three different days; on opening day of Monday at 4 p.m. and on Wednesday which is Youth Day and the children have a special price for Youth Day to get into the fair and that begins at 2 p.m. and goes til 11 o'clock at night. On Saturday afternoon from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m.," says General Manager Dennis Cupp. If you're planning on attending the fair, you may want to purchase your tickets in advance because it could save you some extra money. "They can purchase the ride all night, as we call it, through Sunday, of the 14th, and after that the price goes up to a full price of $15; if they buy them now, it's $13," says Cupp. Advanced tickets can be purchased online at www.rockinghamcountyfair.com. Tickets to the fair itself can also be purchased in advance at a reduced price.
