2019 Fair Dedication

We dedicate the Bluemont Fair every year to one or more Special Individuals.

The 2019 Bluemont Fair is dedicated to two long-time Bluemont residents who both contributed much to our community.

Clyde Beck lived in the village for many years. He was heavily involved in the early days of the Bluemont Fair, and he designed the iconic sketch of the village of Bluemont that was used on the first Fair posters. (You can still buy a signed copy in the EE Lake store today!)

Pam Forbes was also a local artist; she lived on a farm in our area for over 40 years. She helped run the Art in the Foothills annual sale, one of the main fundraisers used to raise money to save and restore the Snickersville Academy.

The paintbrush on the sleeve of the 2019 Bluemont Fair t-shirts represents both of these artists, and is a visual reminder of how much we miss them in our community!
