What’s new at the fair?


Fri, Jul 18th, 2014
Posted in All Fillmore County Fair

What’s new at the fair is the question of the week, and there are lots of new things.

Last year we made the big move changing the beer garden into the Goat Building and making the old Dairy Barn into the bigger and better Beer Barn featuring free music every night. We hope to have better weather this year so our music can be outside. Come enjoy Hubba, Tripwire, Troubleshooter, and Lost Faculties, there should be a music type for everyone.

We heard many of you have made the trip to Minneapolis to enjoy the Church Basement Ladies. We thought we would save you that long trip. Come see the Looney Lutherans, 4 p.m., Friday, July 25. These Lutherans are part of the Church Basement Ladies cast. The ladies will have you rolling in the aisles.

For those history buffs out there we have something for you too. Come join Doug Ohman at the O’Hara school at 3 p.m. for School House Memories bringing you back to a time when all eight grades were in one class-room. Then at 5 p.m. enjoy Heart of the Farm barns of Minnesota. From early days of statehood through the era of agribusiness our barns tell a story.

For those of you who are into bettering your health come join us for the first 5K Ribbon Run registration at 7:30 p.m. with ringing at 8:30 a.m. Saturday morning. We will be meeting at the historic main gate and run out on the trail. Bring your running shoes and join the fun.

There are always the tried and true favorites Arm Wrestling, Bull Riding, Mutton Busting, Rodeo, Demo Derby, and ride the rides.

Come and enjoy the hard work done by the 4-Hers both in the livestock barn and in the 4-H building. 4-H is not the only talents on display. Open class is always a busy area.

We have some really talented people in this county. Come and be amazed or better yet bring your treasures and share. Entry day is Tuesday, July 22. We have room for all of you.

We are looking to seeing you at the fair. Come enjoy the fair food, laugh, be amazed by the great people in this county, and meet your friends at the fair just like the good old days.
