JEFFERSON — For the last 26 years, the Fairest of the Fair program has been part of the Jefferson County Fair. In fact, it’s the theme for this year’s event: “The Year of the Royalty.”

But the truth is, the Fairest of the Fair program dates back much earlier than 1992. The state version of the program began in 1966 and crowned its 51st Fairest of the Fairs in January.
