Pierce County Fair Talent Show

Do you dance, sing, or play an instrument?  If yes, the place to be is the Pierce County Fairgrounds, on Thursday, August 8th.   The Pierce County Fair Talent Show will be featured again on Thursday during the Fair this year at 6:00 p.m.

The Pierce County Fair is seeking amateur entertainers.  All types of talent are encouraged including vocal, instrumental, dramatic readings, skits and dance.  We are welcoming residents from St. Croix County to compete in our talent show as well.

There will be two divisions in each competition.  The junior division is for those entering eighth grade and under and the senior division includes contestants entering the ninth grade through adult.  The preliminary contests will be held in the Picnic Shelter on Thursday evening, August 8th starting at 6:00 p.m.  1st and 2nd places will be awarded in each division from each community show with every participant receiving a participation ribbon.  First place will advance to the finals held on Saturday, August 10th at 11:00 a.m.  In the finals, cash prizes of $125 and $50 will be awarded to the first and second place winners in each division.

There will be four town categories – 1) River Falls & St. Croix County, 2) Spring Valley/Elmwood/Plum City, 3) Prescott and 4) Ellsworth/Maiden Rock/Bay City/Hager City.  Please contact the local coordinator if you are interested in participating or would like more information.    Town coordinators are: Spring Valley/Elmwood/Plum City, contact Ann Webb at 715-273-6874; River Falls and St. Croix County, contact Peg Krasin at 715-425-2670; Prescott, contact LuAnn Sabelko at 715-262-3123; or Ellsworth/Maiden Rock/Hager City/Bay City, contact Merry Hines at 715-273-3466.

All towns will compete consecutively starting with River Falls, SV/Elm/PC, St. Croix Co., Prescott then ending with Ellsworth/MR/HC/BC.  There will not be specific scheduled times for each town like in the past.  So be sure to come at 6:00 p.m. sharp so you don’t miss your favorite act.
