The Saline Community Fair is Almost Here
If you have driven past the fairgrounds over the past two days, you have seen lots of activity. Animals will be arriving starting on Monday, non-livestock exhibits will be entered at various times, displays are being set up, the food wagons will soon be parked in their new location for the next week, and the carnival rides will soon arrive. The exhibit building and barns at the Washtenaw Farm Council Grounds, 5055 Ann Arbor Saline Road, Ann Arbor, will be full of action on Monday as folks of all ages enter everything from vegetables to photos, collections to arts and crafts and the ever-popular flowers, antiques, and needlework and baking entries. You still have time to get those projects ready for the fair. Exhibits can also be entered from 9 a.m. to noon Tuesday and then all non-livestock exhibits will be judged Tuesday afternoon. The goat judging also takes place on Tuesday night at 6:30 p.m. The fair officially opens at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, August 30. The fair book is again digital this year and can be found online. Anyone interested is invited to enter exhibits.
From the crowd-pleasing grandstand events to the anticipated animal shows, the fair is a great opportunity for the public to see livestock they don’t get to see on a daily basis and understand where our food comes from.
