Chelsea Community Fair

. August 1, 2014.

The Chelsea Community Fair lives up to its name, celebrating the community through fun homegrown events. Livestock competitions, livestock auctions and agricultural displays (with awards for accomplishments like “Largest Tomato”) celebrate local farming. Chelsea also crowns a Fair Queen, and provides college scholarships to both the pageant winner and the First Runner-Up. And no Chelsea Fair would be complete without the annual Demolition Derby, where adrenaline-pumped drivers can, well, smash into each other with cars.

Experience Chelsea like a local: Wednesday, August 19 – Saturday, August 23. 10am-10pm. Chelsea Community Fairgrounds, 20501 Old US-12 Hwy., Chelsea. 734-475-1270. chelseafair.org
