Mark your calendars now to come see us,
Farming in 20/20 Vision ~ August 21, 22 and 23, 2020!
Season Of Giving...
It's that time of the year, when we make resolutions, shop until we are broke, try to spread ourselves too thin between family events, traditions and trying to give back to the community. If you find yourself overwhelmed and wish you could do some of those items on your list later in the year, you can!
Consider giving some of your time next year during the fair. We would love to have people that could answer questions at an information booth, or just need people to help keep an eye on exhibits to ensure nothing happens to them. We need your time, if it is just a couple of hours, a few hours each day or an entire day the only way our fair is successful is with our little group of volunteers. So come join us carry forward the tradition of a small community fair.
Fair Fundraiser June 5th
Come join us for our annual fundraising event! We will have a meal at 6 PM and our group of volunteers are working on silent auction items including pies and who knows maybe a pie eating contest or frozen shirt contest. Frozen shirt contest?!? guess you will have to come join us to for dinner to find out what that entails.
Then plan on coming back to the fairgrounds on June 6th and 7th for the annual Tournament of the Inland Empire - come see live jousting, broadswords and knights in all their armor. This event has quickly become a family tradition and we are happy to have them back in 2020. If you ever wanted to join in the action, connect with the Epona Equestrian Team
School break!! WOO HOO some time off from going to school, and an excellent time to start working on your entries for the fair! If you have livestock, now is a great time to review your feeding plan and work with your animal.

If you are interested in cooking, the holidays are an excellent time to practice and learn from others. The long winter days are also a great time to consider working on a still life exhibit, like a small woodcraft, welding exhibit, a lego building or sewing - there are so many different crafts that you can make and enter in the fair. Keep in mind the fair theme, we would love to see what you can come up with that incorporates this years theme of "Farming in 20/20 Vision"
Springtime Youth Calf Sale
Save the date of March 21, 2020 for the 27th Annual sale! In 2020, you will find us in the dairy barn at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds. Watch for the calf grant and scholarship applications to be available in January 2020. See you in March!
If you know of any other livestock scholarships or sales, please email us and we will post the information here to help the kids!
Thank you for coming to the Clayton Farmers Market this summer to support our vendors but also to support the fair. Our vendors and customers are the best in the area, we will see you next year for more punch card filling fun! If you would like to be a vendor, send us an email.
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!
