Darke County Fair to Feature "Elephant Encounter"

The Board of Directors for The Great Darke County Fair are pleased to announce that the ELEPHANT ENCOUNTER will perform 3 shows daily (3pm, 5pm, 7pm) beginning Monday, August 19th and ending Saturday, August 24th.

ELEPHANT ENCOUNTER is an educational and entertaining experience for the entire family, as they guide you through an up close and personal encounter with the world’s largest animals. No place, anywhere, will you see elephants like you are going to see here at The Great Darke County Fair.

The ELEPHANT ENCOUNTER is an all day attraction in a tropical setting. You’ll be inspired as you experience the full force of each elephant’s unique individual personality. The Morris family is lucky to have both species of elephants involved in these shows. Cora is a 49-year-old Asian elephant, weighing in at 9,000 pounds and Shannon is their 25-year-old African elephant, weighing in at 4,500.

This could change the way you think and feel about these magnificent creatures forever. These are not circus elephants, nor are they zoo elephants. They are family elephants and have been owned and cared for by the Morris family for virtually their entire lives. The Morris family represents 3 generations who have dedicated their entire lives to the study and care of these elephants.

These shows will take place in the same location as the Tiger, Alligator and KidBuck$ Shows in past years. Don’t miss this experience at The Great Darke County Fair!
