It's Fair Time

Share the bounty of the summer.  What has kept you engaged and creative this year?  The Mountain State Fair is an opportunity to display your talents.  All sorts of fun will be taking place at the Mountain State Fair on September 6-15 at the WNC Agricultural Center in Fletcher.  Rides, foods, cooking contests, entertainment and exhibits will be in store for visitors.  Exhibits range from crafts, photographs, art, and jewelry to honey products, fruits and vegetables and animals.  While attending the fair is lots of fun, getting your entries down there beforehand may be inconvenient.  The Pony Express picks up your non-perishable items and delivers them to the fair so all you need to do is go down and see all the goodies.  Your items will be delivered back after the fair, along with any ribbons you may have earned.  You can find the whole catalog online now here.

Items are due to the Cooperative Extension office by August 19.   Be sure to include an entry form.  See here for Pony Express details.

Youth are encouraged to participate.  Perhaps they made lots of crafts this summer or grew some beautiful veggies.  See here for a summary of youth entries.
