The Silent Auction, held in The Homecraft building showcases handcrafted and unique items that make awesome gifts. Among the items are gift certificates, handmade baby gifts and novelty household articles. New this year, is our Penny Table. An assortment of items will be displayed and if your “lucky” number is drawn then the item is yours. This activity is fun for all.

Children Activities

There are numerous free activities for children. Most of the activities are located at the S.W. corner of the fairgrounds near the Homecraft building. The big sand pile with toys and the free games area (opposite sides of the building) are open all weekend long. Saturday and Sunday have The Petting Zoo with both farm and exotic animals. It’s fun to watch the animals, but more fun to observe the children’s reactions.

Children's Center

Come and visit the back of the Homecraft building and plan to stay a while. The children may play Bee Bowling, play with the farms and animals in our mini barn or sit a while and create a crafting treasure. Each child (up to 12 yrs) may choose 2 activities to complete through the use of the supplies provided at the fair. This is the perfect environment for children to relax and adults to rest. Painted or glued activities may be left on site for pick-up on your way home. Sunday has 4 special children’s activities. The Rabbit Hopping Club does a demonstration at 11:00AM and 1:00PM in the Ag. Ed. Tent. The Pet Show registration is at 10:00 with the show happening at 10:30. There is no registration fee and all information is available on our web-site. Everyone gets some kind of prize! The Kiddie Pedal Tractor Pull immediately follows the Pet Show so just switch ends in the building and plan to attend. This is another fun activity with no registration fee, but a small treat for all participants. The Children’s Scavenger Hunt has always been well received. This year’s theme is “ A Touch of Country”. Find the 12 items hidden in the building and put your response in the box. You might win a $25.00 prize. Guess the number of buttons in the jar and win a $25.00 prize.
