Bluemont Fair Organizers Announce Poster Design Winner

Organizers of the 50th annual Bluemont Fair have selected and announced the winner of this year’s poster design contest—Jody West of Fort Valley.

West, a graphic designer working as the marketing director for the National Sporting Library & Museum in Middleburg, created a design that features balloon lettering and a crescent man-in-the-moon overlooking the Bluemont Community Center, formerly the Bluemont Schoolhouse, and multiple tents, food trucks, musicians and fair visitors. According to a statement from the organizers, the design is reminiscent of the “groovy 1970 aesthetic” from the year of the first fair. Her design will be displayed on the fair poster, T-shirt and other memorabilia.

The Bluemont Fair will be held Sept. 21-22 this year. For more information about the fair, go to To see more of West’s work, go to
