The Adams County Jr. Fair Beef BBQ Committee announced last week that it has donated $20,000 to assist in the building of the new small animal complex which will be open for the 2023 Adams County Fair.
According to Corbett Phipps, Chairman of the BBQ Committee, the committee has assisted in building the now “old” show arena, new show arena, new pens for the sheep and goat barns and much more.
The annual dinner continues to be a staple in the Adams County area and has broken serving records for the past three years. The first barbecue was held in 1963 and has helped raise funds for many projects supporting the Junior Fair. The Committee has donated over $130,000 to assist the fairgrounds including: the new show arena, the rabbit and poultry barn, the Jr. Fair activities building, and much more.
