The International Association of Fairs and Expositions (IAFE) recently announced that the South Florida Fair is the winner of 16 awards, including four first-place awards and nine second-place awards, in its annual competitions. The contests attract entries from fairs throughout the United States and internationally.

What do “The Voice,” the sound of the Beatles, country crooning and old time rock ‘n’ roll all have in common? The 2014 South Florida Fair. That’s where a variety of entertainment will be featured on the Coca-Cola Stage. Wellington’s hometown favorite singer-songwriter Cassadee Pope — who gained national attention when she won season three of NBC’s “The Voice” — will take the stage on Wed., Jan. 22. Pope’s roots connected with the South Florida Fair when she won a talent contest in 2005. Another fan favorite from “The Voice,” The Swon Brothers, will perform on Tues., Jan. 28. The two brothers from Oklahoma were finalists on season four of “The Voice” and recently signed a record deal with Arista Nashville.
