Ticket prices at the gates are increasing to help support improved services and higher operation costs. You may still buy Advance Tickets at any of the OUTLETS LISTED HERE up until Fair time.

Our Store is now closed except for memberships, donations and registrations for events and workshops so that we may focus on getting our new inventory ready for the Country Store on the fairgrounds. 2014 Fair T-shirts, tote bags, aprons and more will be available online by October 1.
