Demolition Derby & Fireworks Set Saturday, June 27

Local residents are looking with anticipation to Saturday, June 27th as the Fentress Co. Fair Association once again presents the annual Demolition Derby and one of the largest fireworks displays in the area.

Beginning at 6:30 p.m., the event will get underway in front of the grandstands. This year, the prize money has been increased, which should attract some of the top demolition drivers and cars in the area.

The event is open to the world and this year, there will be two classes — the V8 Modified Stock and something new this year, the 5 Ft. Mini Cars.  The prize money for the V-8 modified will be increased to $1,500 for first place, $750 for second place, and $500 for third place.

In the 5 Ft. Mini Car, first place will pay $1,000, second will pay $500 and third will pay $300.

Another addition to this year’s demolition derby will be a Lawn Mower Derby and for the little ones from 3 to 8 years of age, a Power Wheels Derby.

An entry fee of $50.00 will be taken at the gate.  If a vehicle doesn’t pass inspection, entry fee will not be refunded.

All cars must be on the grounds by 5:30 for inspection.

Competition begins promptly at 6:30 p.m.


Immediately following the Demolition Derby, the Fentress Co. Fair Association, in cooperation with area businesses and individuals, will sponsor their Gigantic Fireworks Display, which is the biggest annual fireworks event in the county and one of the largest in the area.

General admission for the event will be $5.00.  Children 5 and under will be admitted free.

Everyone is encouraged to attend.
