May is flying by and we are only getting closer to the Corndog Kickoff and the Fair! There is a lot of preparing to be done for our big events.  As I continue to plan and gather donations for the Corndog Kickoff, I am also getting excited for all the fun we are going to have during the event! The skygliders are being put in, which makes the Fair come to life even more! Have you ordered your ticket yet or sent in your donation for the auction? There is still time!


Are you looking for other ways to become involved with the Fair and the Blue Ribbon Foundation? We have many different opportunities for you to get involved! Put your name or a special message on a brick, light pole or even a tree! For a donation of $100 your name will be engraved on a brick, placed at one of our many locations on the Fairgrounds. A donation of $100 will go towards the upkeep and enhancement of trees around the Fairgrounds. It’s exciting to go around the Fairgrounds and see all the names of people who have had an impact on the Fair! The Fair wouldn't be what it is today without the help from all our great donors and volunteers!


To get an even greater experience from the Fair, become a member of the 1854 Society or Jake’s Club. The 1854 society provides you many perks during the Fair that you can’t get anywhere else! Jake’s Club gets you access to a VIP area in the Jacobson Building to overlook the events that includes a full bar and a variety of food! There is no doubt in my mind that every person who comes to the Fair will have a GREAT time! See you there in 84 days!
