The fair starts Friday, Aug. 16, and runs through Sunday, Aug. 18.
The fair started with humble beginnings, said Wayne Gray, president of the Cornish Fair's board of directors. "It pretty much started out as a penny sale and then it grew bigger."
Agriculture remains the heart of the fair, Gray said.
"It's a 4-H fair so it's all about education for the kids," he said.
The fair is open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday.
