2016 Fair Update
Posted July 8, 2016 at 5:57 am by Tim Dustrude
The Fair is getting near, about 40 days away! Planning is well underway with vendors, entertainers, and exhibitors all excited to showcase at the Fairgrounds from August 17th through the 20th (Wednesday-Saturday).
This year’s Fair theme is “Barn and Raised in the Islands” with beautiful poster art by the talented Jill Bliss of San Juan Island.
Hey kids (and parents!) Thanks again to a very generous anonymous donor, all youth exhibitors, age 5 through 16, will get a FREE season pass just for entering something! You’ve got plenty of time to fine-tune your creative project before entry day August 16th. Check out the online premium book on the Fair website OR visit your local library starting next week for tags, entry forms, and peruse the reference copy on hand for entry guidelines.
Get Involved! If you’re thinking about getting a Vendor Booth space for your business, your handmade crafts, or your organization, please sign up by visiting our website—Now’s the time! The Main Building has sold out, but there are outdoor spaces, and a couple one-day booth spaces left in the Main Building.
Performers! Many local and Pacific Northwest entertainers are showcasing this year, will you? More information on the Fair website.
Be sure to Like Us on Facebook and check our website to be up to date on what’s exciting and new this year at the Fair—for starters, a sword swallower and a Silent Disco… but we can’t tell you all of it, you’ll just have to come see for yourself in August!
The San Juan County Fair Staff and Volunteers look forward to seeing each and every one of you at the Fair!
