Mark your calendars now to come see us,
Farming in 20/20 Vision ~ August 21, 22 and 23, 2020!
Wow! The Superintendents and Fair Board have been busy, so many updates about the fair already coming available. With all the great information available, please check out the Exhibitor's Corner page which covers as much as possible regarding exhibiting with us at the fair.
The 2020 Fairbooks are in! You can click the link above for a pdf version or stop by the fairgrounds main gate to pick up a book please make sure the lids are closed and let us know if there are only a couple left so we can restock them.
COVID 19 Updates
This year has turned out to be a challenging event in history and the Fair Board has been and continues to monitor the guidance of the governor's office and the Department of Health. The reality is that no one knows with absolute certainty what August will bring.
As of June 28th here are the updates:
* The Fair Board is planning as if the CCF will take place as scheduled. Please note the boundaries for exhibitors - that is a change for this year. We will continue to update the website and the facebook page with the latest updates.
* Our partners at the Clayton Pro West Rodeo are also planning for a summer of fun and are assuming that while we may all be in masks to attend and standing/sitting 6 ft apart that the rodeo will move forward.
But at the same time, the Fair Board and the various Superintendents are looking at ways to hold a "modified" fair should the COVID crisis not be controlled to a level that would allow for the fair to go on like normal. Some departments assume they will have record breaking entries as everyone has had so much time at home to work on projects.
In the end, it is up to you the entrant to decide if you want to risk the possibility that the fair this year may end up like the Junior Livestock Show with a possibility of the CCF being a virtual show. There are no guarantees and as we have all seen, things can change almost over night. Until we know more, we are planning to proceed as normal but will update everyone as soon as we know if that approach needs to change.
We appreciate your understanding and know that these times are very frustrating, we all hope that by August we are back to normal and can see everyone at the fair!
Sunday June 21st
Happy Father's Day! If you need veggies for dinner or a one of kind, locally crafted gift for dad; come out to the fairgrounds Sunday from 11-4pm. We have local crafters and vendors with a little bit of everything.
There will be changes this year as we work through the COVID restrictions and some changes to keep the fairgrounds and our visitors safe.
Make sure you wear some good walking shoes as the COVID restrictions mean we will be spacing vendors further apart to keep everyone safe. For those return shoppers, the COVID restrictions also mean we can't have the coffee available but we can have the punch cards! We will have plenty of smiles (possibly behind masks) and all kinds of market wares to be had. Come check out the market, bring your punch card, tell your friends and come help support these local vendors.
Fair Parking Attendants - Donation
if you were at the fair Friday and Saturday last year you know what a zoo the parking lot was. We usually have a group help park cars for the rodeo in which we give them a donation and would like to do the same for the fair. We need a group or two - (one to do each day) to park cars Friday August 21st and Saturday August 22nd mornings from 7 till 10:30-11. We would want to meet with you the week of fair to go over final details.
If you would like more details you can message this page or send us an email at email@example.com
Quilt Block Challenge - Quilts of Valor
This year we will be partnering with Quilts of Valor to create a quilt for a service member or veteran who has been touched by war. All blocks submitted will be used to create a quilt and then it will be given to honor a military member. For more information, check out our Exhibitors Corner page.
UPDATE: Since we continue to be sheltering at home for at least almost half of the year - is it possible that our handy sewing community could create 2020 blocks? While only 3 can be judged, if you have the time and material let's help Quilts of Valor give out even more quilts this year. If you can't sew, but know someone who does maybe offer to buy the fabric and they can swap labor for materials?
Parking, Camping and Trailer Parking
Did you know that there are designated areas for parking your livestock trailer, your RV and your car when you are at the fair? The same parking scheme is used for the rodeo (with the exception of stock trailers) and the farmers markets.
When you come to join us for an event, parking should be done in lines going north and south. The row of parking next to the fence (that runs east to west) is for handicapped visitors or are reserved parking as the signage indicates. Everyone else should park no more than 2 cars deep in lines running north to south. Why? because we can fit more cars into the parking lot if we all park going north to south.
Also, please remember fire lane spacing - our fire department needs at least 8 ft passages to get those large trucks to any area of the fair should a fire break out or an emergency response be needed. It is NOT okay to just park on the edge and reduce the fire lanes!!
Please check out the new fairgrounds map for more details. We love to see everyone at our events, we just ask that you keep in mind your fellow drivers ability to get in and out as well as our fire department's ability to get in to help us keep everyone safe.
