    Single subject, single verb. The ... sight ... is ... - and use sight, not site (a site is a location), unless you mean the site where the men blow trumpets. – Davo Jun 2 '17 at 18:04

    Do you mean "site" or do you mean "sight"... they are homophones but they don't mean the same things. – Catija Jun 2 '17 at 18:12

Correct is

A)The most fascinating site in the country is the men blowing trumpets.
B)The most fascinating sites in the country are the men blowing trumpets.

Also, "site" should be "sight" since you are probably talking about the visual spectacle and not the location.

A)The most fascinating sight in the country is the men blowing trumpets.

in which case singular "sight" is correct.
