The Big Butler Fair concluded Saturday, July 6, marking the end of the annual festival that draws in thousands of visitors from around the county and beyond the state’s borders. The agricultural fair is the largest of its kind in Western Pennsylvania, according to the fair’s website.

Carnival rides, games, fair food and live music continued into the final day of the event. Saturday also saw miniature horse pulls, and featured a Bike Night for motorcycle enthusiasts, as well as live shows by country music performers Michael Christopher and Christian Beck, who opened for headliner act Sammy Kershaw. The fair will return next summer.
