Bring the family for a day filled with activities and entertainment, and bring home a special piece of art, a hand-made item, product, or a souvenir from your visit. Listen to music at the bandshell, make a craft under the Kid’s Corner tent, play on a bouncer, visit with animals from the Burgess-Shadbush Nature Center, enjoy shows by featured entertainers, and more.

Parking and entry is FREE and so is the shuttle bus that travels between the grounds and the Community Center, so you won’t have a long walk back to your car with all of the treasures you found at the fair.
