While the weeks and months ahead still hold many unknowns, the Saline Community Fair board is committed to providing a safe environment for our 2020 fair. At this time the fair board is continuing to plan for the fair, scheduled for September 2-6, 2020 at the Washtenaw Farm Council Grounds. Several new attractions have been booked for this year, including the LaChance Comedy Farm Magic Show and the Bricktown Lego Display.

The second annual Saline Community Fair Ambassador Scholarship Program will be accepting applications until July 1st. This program will provide several high school students with the opportunity to represent the fair and assist with various activities, as well as scholarships, community service opportunities and leadership experience.  Applicants must be in grades 9-12 as of September 2020 and selection will be based on the application, resume and interview to be held in July. The recipients will be introduced at the fair on September 2nd. The ambassador application can be found on the Saline Community Fair website at www.salinefair.org.

Again in 2020 the fair is going green and will not be printing a fair book for general distribution. The fair book will be available on the website. There are thousands of classes offered for exhibiting everything from rabbits to all types of vegetables to quilts and more, including several new classes such as those for professional photographers.

More information will be available on our website, on facebook at Saline Community Fair and in Saline Post articles as this annual event approaches. Keep checking back for updates as our environment and guidelines continue to change. In the meantime mark your calendars for the 2020 Saline Community Fair.
