New to the Fair: the AGmazing Agri-Center
Many agricultural groups are getting together for a new and exciting opportunity for families at the Fairfield County Fair. The Ed Sands/Farm Bureau Building located on the north side of the track will be full of hands-on, fun learning experiences and demonstrations throughout the duration of the fair. Some of these will include:
A combine simulator
Augmented Reality Sandbox
Five FFA Chapter displays
Movie Theater with ‘Ag’ Movies
Corn Pit Sandbox
Farm Coloring Mural
Build an Apple Tree
Stop by anytime to get a picture of you and your family to take home with you. We will also be having a scavenger hunt where kids will be able to visit all the barns, find the trivia question, and turn it in for a great kid’s prize.
If you are a Farm Bureau member or would like to become one at the fair, make sure to stop by the Farm Bureau table and enter to win a prize worth up to $250.
If you are looking for a place to rest your feet, there will be a stage that will have cooking demonstrations, the commodity carnival, dogs at work, a CAUV taxes meeting, and ‘Meet a Farmer’.
Our ribbon cutting ceremony will be Sunday, Oct. 9 at 10 a.m. right after the 4-H Endowment Breakfast.
Other highlights include Smokey the Bear, who will be walking around from Thursday from 10 a.m. – noon and the Cattlemen’s Chili Cook-off with Beef at 1:30 p.m.
