Battle of The Bands Is Back! Bigger And Better

We are trying to get the word out to all local Bands to audition for the Battle of the Bands during the

2019 Josephine County Fair.

Please help spread the word to your local band members and friends

and let’s have another great battle at the Fair this year.

How to submit applications will be announced later. Contestants will be evaluated and selected based on vocal and instrumental performance, musical interpretation/ originality, and stage presence. At the final performance bands will be evaluated according to fan reaction, by use of a decibel meter. The winner will be announced after the competition.

We will be selecting eight finalist to play in the Battle of the Bands. Each of the finalist will receive two fair entry tickets and a parking pass for each band member for Saturday, August 17th. The top three winners will have prizes to be announced later.

Start getting your group together and practicing now and we will get you more details as they are worked out.

We will be posting on Facebook, our website: josephinecountyfairgrounds.com, and you will hear about it on the radio soon. Each selected band will have the opportunity to have a table available to sell merchandise.

Truck and Tractor Pulls 6:00 to 8:00 pm


Truck and Tractor pulling, also known as power pulling, is a motorsport competition, which requires modified tractors to pull a heavy sledge (sled) along a 35-ft. wide and length of 100 meter or 300 ft.+ track, with the winner being the tractor that pulls the sled farthest.

The sport is known as the world's most powerful motorsport, due to the multi-engine modified tractor pullers.

The sled is known as a weight transfer sled. This means that as it is pulled down the track, the weight is transferred (linked with gears to the sledge’s wheels) from over the rear axles and towards the front of the sledge. In front of the rear wheels, there is a "pan". This is essentially a metal plate and as the weight moves over this the resistance builds. The further the tractor pulls the sledge, the harder it gets.
