According to Gena Prickette, the Hopkins County Dairy Festival Board of Directors is excited to let you know that the Dairy Festival is ON! for Summer 2020! ‘Our Hometown Tradition’ is the theme this year and there are 10 contestants for the title and crown of Dairy Festival Queen! The one-day festival date is Saturday August 8, 2020 with a parade and a pageant planned on that date.
Gena stated, “although the hot-air balloons were not able to switch dates and cannot attend, two other events will take place on Saturday August 8th. In the morning, the Dairy Festival Parade will be held at 9:00 am (an hour earlier than usual) and that evening, the pageant will be staged at 7:00 pm. Preceding the Dairy Festival date, we are planning a milking contest on Sunday August 2nd at 3:00 in the Horse Pavilion of the Hopkins County Civic Center. During pageant rehearsal week, the contestants will attend evening practices August 3rd through 7th in leading up to pageant night, August 8. Our website should be updated very soon with these dates and times.” On that website, hopkinscountydairyfestival.com, you’ll also find interesting facts and hometown tradition within the rich 60-year history of the Hopkins County Dairy Festival.
