Come see the car show, get some fair food or buy a freezer full of meet during our Livestock Auction on Saturday at 3PM. We have free Home Depot kits for the kids to build throughout the days, vendors with amazing things to sell, games, crafts, and lots of things to do. Friday night starting at 4 PM enjoy a horse show in the arena or come out Saturday night around 7:30 PM for a free movie (with a paid entrance to the fair).
Bring the kids, your friends and neighbors but please, leave your pets at home.

Some key dates that you need to remember regarding receiving of entries.
Just A Reminder

Stop by either of the ticket booths on your way into the fair grounds, anyone not adhering to this policy will have to leave for the remainder of the day.

The fair is finally here, soon all your hard work will be put on display and then you will have memories and ribbons to show for it. Congratulations on the work you have put in so far, get all your show gear gathered up and ready to go as we are a week away from your livestock and your exhibits coming to fair grounds. The time you spend getting ready now will help reduce the stress and anxiety of coming to the fair. Don't forget the little things like a way to get feed and water to the barn, having a second set of shoes for showing or a rag for cleaning up your boots to put your best foot forward in the ring. Ask for help if you need it, your barn superintendents are here to keep everyone safe and judging on schedule; but they have been in your shoes so ask questions if you need help. Ask a fellow exhibitor, watch the classes before you so you can learn from them both their mistakes and their tricks. And remember, not everyone will go home with a grand champion ribbon but everyone will learn and make memories. It doesn't matter what the color of the ribbon is, you got a ribbon because you put in the work and showed up when so many did not. Learn from this year's challenges and mistakes to improve your showmanship for next year.
We know you enjoy coming to the fair to see the animals and watch the kids show. Did you know that these kids have been working for months raising the animal, caring for it and training it to walk/stand in the show ring? It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to enter the ring and it's only possible if the kid has the resources to purchase their project. How can you help? Simple, by purchasing an animal during the Livestock Auction
Aug 24th @ 3 PM.
Even though the kids love their animal, at the end of the fair most of the livestock has to be sold. The kids receive the money to put toward their future project or their future. It truly is a win - win proposition as they benefit from the funds to put toward a future project and you get quality, homegrown meat to put in your freezer (or give away as gifts or to the local food bank). For more information, check out our Market Animal brochure. We hope to see you and your cash during the auction.
We need your help!
The fair is 100% volunteer ran and we need some help with administrative tasks and/or help during the week of the fair watching over the entries. If you have a few hours or a day to help please contact us!
