Info-tainment & Excitement Opportunities
Fluffy Fun ─ The Rabbit Competition multiplies, bunny-style, with Siamese Sable Britannia Petites (tipping scales at only 2.5 pounds), Tan Belgian Hares and Black, Brown and Fawn Silvers. And the Dog Law Enforcement folks bring you AKC Meet the Breeds, Working Dog and Agility Demos – as far from the rabbits as possible.
Artisans Alley ─ A Quilt Trail and Tinsmith Michael Felk join all-star artisan lace-makers, spinners, wheat weavers, horse-hair braiders, potters, chair caners, wood carvers and more.
Avian Adventures -- Fawn over frolicking fowl in the Water Fowl Habitat in the poultry area. Bantam and Tinted categories join the Egg Competition, and demos answer what separates good eggs from bad.
More youth will strut their stuff with new Poultry, Dairy Cattle, Breeding Sheep, Goats and Alpaca categories of Youth Showmanship!
Tractor square dancing isn't enough fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat drama? Check out Chelee Warriors Mounted Archery demo for unparalleled athletic skill and equine beauty.
Low-Stimulation Shelters throughout the complex will offer a quiet, peaceful escape from crowds for those who have sensory challenges, or are just over-stimulated.
