MINOT, ND — The U.S. Postal Service celebrates the fun of America’s state and county fairs with four new Forever stamps. The whimsical artwork of the stamps is meant to evoke a nostalgic feeling for America’s fairs past and present. The stamps show a traditional fair theme where communities gather to socialize and have fun.

The State and County Fairs Forever stamps were dedicated at the North Dakota State Fair in Minot, ND. News about the stamps is being shared on social media using the hashtags #StateFairsStamps, #StateCountyFairsStamps and #CountyFairsStamps. Also, a video of the stamps unveiling ceremony is on Facebook.com/usps.

“The great thing about fairs is they have something for everyone, from concerts and carnival rides to cotton candy and contest winners” said Postal Service Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President David E. Williams, who served as the dedicating official. “These whimsical stamps highlight the educational and social value fairs bring to communities with opportunities to learn, teach, and have fun with friends and family.”      MORE
