This is the 40th year for our Festival. We have put together events for the entire family starting in March with the Queen and Teen Queen Pageants at East Fairmont High School, the Little and Junior Miss Pageants at East Fairmont High School, followed in April by the Senior Queen Pageant which will be held at the Middletown Mall in White Hall. All of this leads up to the opening of the Festival on the 23rd of May with our Grand Feature Parade through the streets of Fairmont. To finish off our opening night will be entertainment performing live at Palatine Park.

Friday, May 24th, is the night for the entire family.

It all culminates Saturday with the Amateur Pepperoni Roll Bake-Off, so come hungry because the public chooses the winner here. Anyone can purchase tickets; those tickets can be exchanged for samples of any of the contestant's rolls. The contestant with the most votes will win a $300 grand prize. If that’s not enough, you could enter the Pepperoni Roll Eating Competition that will be held that evening at 4 pm. So now that you have sampled the local fare and spent a weekend riding carnival rides, sit back and enjoy the evenings scheduled entertainment, followed by fireworks.

We are in hopes that you can join us for a weekend of fun and kick off your summer here in Fairmont.
