The Fair Is In The Air
Bring someone special to stroll through the midway and enjoy a night under the bright lights of the 95th Putnam County Fair. The Putnam County Fair will have booths, vendors, games, rides, events, and festivities beginning on Thursday, July 29. Be sure to drop by Hip C’s booth at the fair this year and introduce yourself! Ask us about ways you can stay hip on current events and/or support our community. We will be giving out free refreshments at our booth. Join us for a free lemonade or snack on some free popcorn. The fair is in the air, my friend. We can almost smell those incredible funnel cakes now…

This “happy hour” style event helps Upper Cumberland children living in foster care through school supply donations. Last year, 290 backpacks were filed and donated, let’s see if we can beat that number this year! Everyone is welcome, so bring your friends and family. This event is sponsored by The Biz Foundry, Red Silo Brewing Company, and the UC Young Lawyer Association.
