Hardin Northern ends fair run, new partnership born

The Hardin County Fair is sadly announcing that the Hardin Northern Music Boosters is ending their longtime tenure at the fair. The music boosters have been a fixture

“The Hardin Northern Music Boosters restaurant has been a staple at the fair,” said Brad Murphy, Hardin County Fair Concessions Committee Chairman. “Many directors, exhibitors, parents, and guests of all ages have enjoyed the home-style cooking at the iconic restaurant under the grandstand.”

The group decided that due to ongoing staffing and supply chain concerns, it was time to close the restaurant.

“I truly enjoyed the time I volunteered in the restaurant and am sad Hardin Northern will no longer be running it,” said Marty Skeens, Former President of the Hardin Northern Music Bossters. “Good luck to this year’s tenants!”

While the polar bears will be missed, an exciting new partnership is being forged to occupy the restaurant space vacated. Salsitas by Salsa’s is a new restaurant coming to the Hardin County Fair. Operated by the Mendez family, and translated to mean “Mini Salsa’s,” Salsitas by Salsa’s brings the iconic Kenton staple Salsa’s Mexican Grill experience to the fair.

“We’re excited to bring our Mexican food to the fair,” said Vis Mendez of Salsa’s. “It’s a partnership that just makes sense, and we can’t wait to see everyone at the fair.”

Salsitas by Salsa’s will feature select items on their restaurant menu.

Guests will be able to enjoy their meal served in a quick service line to sit in the dining area or get back to visiting the fair.
