Children’s Day is Friday from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. For the first time ever, the fair will also be hosting a Military Farmhand Olympics on Friday for our services members. All military personnel members are encouraged to come out in co-ed teams to participate. On Saturday, there will be livestock, rabbits, poultry and even a pig-kissing contest.

The event is free but a portion of all donated proceeds will go towards Change for a Change. Last year, they raised more than $2,000 for the charity. That’s more than any other free fair in the state!
