Final prep underway for Agassiz Fall Fair

Free shuttle being offered

Final preparations are underway for the Agassiz Fall Fall and Corn Festival.

This year’s theme is “Something to Crow About” and will feature a Poultry in Motion demonstration trailer along with all the popular events.

Included in the activities this year are a parade, stage entertainment, midway, corn husking, livestock, 4-H exhibits, educational displays, antique tractor pull, home arts, photography, farmer’s market, kids’ corner, crafts, flowers and vegetables. The crowning of the Corn King or Queen will take place on the stage on Saturday.

The fair kicks off on Friday at 4 p.m., when the midway rides are offered at a reduced rate. Friday night will also feature entertainment on stage, and the first peek at the exhibits in the hall.

On Saturday the 4-H will be well represented with cattle, horses, pigs, sheep, swine, dogs, goats, rabbits, sewing and educational poster. The Agricultural Hall will be full of the latest entries in the baking, canning, vegetable, flower and handicraft sections.

The hall will be open on Friday from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. and Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. The Saturday stage entertainment will include the crowning of the Corn King or Queen, musicians, dancers, the goat milking contest and the corn husking contest. There will be a BMX bike demonstration, as well as the popular antique tractor pulling contest and the lawn mower races.

This year will also include a free shuttle to the fairgrounds, sponsored by Prospera Credit Union.

Admission prior to the fair can be purchased at Agassiz/Harrison Printers, Shoppers Drug Mart, Agassiz Produce, Prospera Credit Union (Agassiz), HUB International Barton Insurance, and the Agricultural Hall during exhibit registration.
