Prior to 1979, the Fair Queen was called “Miss Palmyra Fair, Wayne County 4-H Fair Queen”; today, “Wayne County Fair Queen”. In 1979, Dorothy & Leonard Miller approached the Fair Board of directors to ask permission to have our own pageant, it was approved and the Wayne County Fair Queens Pageant was initiated.
