ALLISON – Erika Brinkmann was crowned the 2024 Butler County Fair Queen during Tuesday night’s coronation ceremony, following the annual Butler County Fair parade around the track.

Erika Brinkmann had also just been crowned Miss Greene during the city’s annual River Days festival the weekend prior. She was crowned by last year’s winner and outgoing Butler County Fair Queen, Brooklyn Wix.

“Overall, I’ve had a blast as the Butler County Fair Queen. It’s been nothing but a dream of mine to do this,” said Wix.

The Fair Queen’s court was crowned as follows: First Runner-Up was given to Miss Clarksville, Addy Johnson. Second Runner-Up was given to Miss Shell Rock, Karissa Oldenburger. Miss Congeniality was given to Miss Parkersburg, Ada Switzer.

This year’s Fair Queen contest saw 10 candidates, each being crowned the queen for their respective Butler County town.
