One of the earliest British blues bands, Savoy Brown with founder/guitarist Kim Simmond at the helm helped launch the 1967 U.K. blues movement that brought blues music back to the USA. In the process, the band became part of the framework that launched the rock and roll music of the ’70’s.

Beginning at 7PM, and held in August. Occasional special concerts may be featured at other times. You will find us on the lawn of the NBT Bank, across from Canajoharie’s famed “Dummy Light” on State Route 10, a block south of Rte 5S.  Concert expenses are covered by the generosity of our local sponsors and all are COMPLETELY FREE TO THE PUBLIC!  In inclement weather, the show goes on, indoors at the Arkell Performing Arts Center at the High School. Watch for the signs.

“Sometimes it’s necessary to get back to basics. In the case of Los Hacheros, that means returning to the deep groove of Afro-Caribbean music that provides the source material for modern salsa and all of its permutations.” NPR
A band of only 5 musicians, Los Hacheros can sound like a conjunto of 12. Eddie Venegas plays violin, sings chorus and improvises mambos on the trombone. Itai Kriss sings, plays flute, campana, and guiro, while Papote Jimenez is in charge of lead vocals, soulful soneos and congas. William Ash holds down the tumbaos on baby bass while Jacob Plasse plays the tres, a guitar-like instrument originating from the Oriente Province in Cuba.

It is a community based pageant that celebrates poise, interview skills, community service, education, and learning about who you are as a young woman. If these parts of life interest you, you join in on our pageant fun!

There are four stages of competition: interview, on stage speech, on stage question, and modeling of a dress the contestant feels comfortable and beautiful in.

This year we have a new annual format for the Miss Fonda Fair Pageant! Starting this year, the pageant will be held during the day of the Fonda Fair’s Community Celebration Party! All stages of competition will continue to be held on the fairgrounds, in the Kane Entertainment Building!
