If you have visited our website lately, you may have noticed that our updates have been slow. We apologize, but are happy that you are back to find information about all that is going on at our fairgrounds. I've been out of the office for a few weeks as I recover from an illness. But, with the 2013 fair approaching fast, the office has remained open and we are working hard to make the 2013 fair the best one yet!
If you have been fortunate enough to get your hands on one of our new pens or folding schedules (YES! we have them in the office!), you may have recognized this year's theme - Fair Dynasty! We hope you are as happy, happy, happy as we are about this fun idea!
The office is working hard on the final pages of the Fair Book and the 2013 version should be available to you soon! As soon as we finalize everything, we will post the file online, and the printed copy will be available in the office and around the county soon after that! Inside the book you will find all of the information that you ever wanted to know about the 2013 fair, from our exciting line-up of entertainment - including Matt Enik, McGuffey Lane, The Shotgun Band, AND back by popular demand The VanDell's - to information about entering items into our open class exhibits. For those of you who do plan to enter items this year, there are a few changes that have been made. The due date for entering will be Friday, July 12. This is one week earlier than previous years due dates. In addition, persons wishing to exhibit more than 25 items in Juniors, Teenagers, Household Arts, Horticulture, and Floriculture will be charged $0.50 for each additional item over 25. More information on these changes will be available in the Fair Book.
This year, our price for single-day admission at the gate will be $6.00 per person (children 9 and under will still be admitted free with a paying adult). This makes our membership and weekly tickets a better deal than ever before (a savings of $17 for the week!). These tickets can be purchased in the office anytime before July 27th.
For all of our 4-H and FFA members and advisors - please share with others that we will not be taking photos for fair passes this year. The passes will include the individuals name and club name only. Hopefully this will save everyone a little time during this busy time of year!
I am so excited for this year's fair and there is so much information to share, but I guess you'll have to wait for our Fair Book or my next update to find out more!
Thanks for taking the time to catch up with us - I hope you have had a wonderful day. Don't forget to count the blessings you have been given today before you go to sleep tonight. Watch for more fair news soon.
We are currently planning the 2013 activities for the Entertainment Center. Watch for announcements!
What will we have as the Grandstand Entertainment at the 2013 Greene County Fair? We'll announce the latest as soon as it is finalized. Let us know what you hope we will have by contact us or by posting on our Facebook page.
