Chelan County Fair-From Pioneer Days to Modern Ways

Roni Freund Pete Freund Photography | 08/30/2019 | Blog, Lake Chelan Valley, Leavenworth Cascade Foothills, Seattle Northcountry, Wenatchee Columbia River Valley

The 2019 theme of the Chelan County Fair is “From Pioneer Days to Modern Ways” and features some great new entertainment and vendors. The fair begins on Thursday, September 5th and runs through Sunday, September 8th. Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and students, and a Family Pass is $30 for 2 adults and 3 children.

Friday night at 7:30 we welcome Joe Diffie, performing for the first time in Cashmere. The multi-platinum-selling artist who dominated the charts during a hot streak in the ‘90’s may have been absent from the radio charts for the past few years, but Joe-Joe-Joe Diffie has never slowed down – writing, touring and recording a myriad of projects including his critically acclaimed 2010 bluegrass album "Homecoming," and his recent "Roots And Boots" acoustic tour.
