Fillmore County Fair activities


Mon, Jul 19th, 2010
Posted in Arts & Culture



It is fair week!! There are many 4-H members throughout Fillmore County that work all year to show off their projects at the county fair. We hope that you will be able to come and check out these projects and support and congratulate the 4-H members for all their hard work.

A new exhibit at the fair this year will be our food sculptures. Each club was given the opportunity to participate in making a creation out of non-perishable foods. We are excited about the creativity of this project and look forward to what will be made. The public will be able to vote on their winner by placing money in the bucket next the exhibit that they like the best. At the end of the fair all the food and the money donated will be given to the food shelf. Come and support this new project.

Here is the schedule for 4-H Events throughout the week! Come and support the kids.
