Orange County Fair Schedule Reposted

We can tell it's almost Fair time because we're getting lots of calls. Shown below is a repost from May 12 with the schedule of 4-H shows at the Orange County Fair. We checked the fair's website today and it's still under construction.

We did find out that the Fair catalogs are being distributed in this week's Orange Review, so be sure to buy a copy of that and keep the insert! In addition to the complete schedule, the insert will also include entry information for arts and crafts, baked goods, garden and farm produce, etc. We know you 4-H'ers have great things to enter!!!

Fair Dates: July 22-25, 2015 (note the four-day schedule this year!)

Fair Theme: "Farm to Fair to Home"  You may wish to use this for decorating stalls/pens and Cloverbud wagons.
