COTR and county fair fall on same weekend in 2014

By Correne Martin

Two of Crawford County’s biggest events are going to fall on the same weekend in 2014. But organizers don’t feel this is a conflict. Instead, they are moving forward with the belief that a little cross-promotion and creative planning might benefit them both.

Country on the River will take place Aug. 7-9 next year, while the Crawford County Fair will be Aug. 6-10. This is happening because of the way the calendar is in 2014. COTR is always held on the first Thursday, Friday and Saturday in August, and the county fair is always the second weekend in August (though it occurs Wednesday through Sunday). Also, COTR’s Friday night headliner, Jason Aldean, and the fair’s midway company were only available that weekend. In 2015, the calendar will be similar and, once again, the events will happen simultaneously. Then, the calendar will change and there will be a break for five years.
