Strolling the fairgrounds this year will be Karen Quest and her cast of stilt characters. Dubbed “America’s Funniest Cowgirl”, Karen Quest has been blazing a trail since 1998 with her one-woman award-winning original comedy act, Cowgirl Tricks. Skillful trick roping, impressive whip cracking, outstanding audience rapport and improvisational kooky cowgirl shenanigans have proven wildly popular at domestic and international venues for audiences of all ages.
While enjoying the Fair, you can also watch for Over The Top™ Stilt Characters, straight out of the mind of Karen Quest. Each original, lovable, playful and colorful character is engaging and uplifting. With Karen’s background in theater and circus, combined with an overactive imagination, her goal is to delight, amaze, entertain and take you to new heights. Find out what a real high five feels like!
A former circus girl with a B.A. in Theatre from California State University at Northridge (CA), juggling, clowning, acrobatics, fire-eating, unicycling, and stunt work, Karen brings with her expertise and decades of experience performing for family audiences at state and county fairs, festivals and more in 25 states and 10 countries.
Fairgoers exclaim: “I would have paid to see her, this was an amazing show for children and adults. The talent and jokes were family appropriate. That’s one show I’d watch over and over again.”
