The Piatt County Fair board is planning a Fair! It will be held June 17 – 20.
We have booked the ITPA for our annual tractor pull on Friday, June 18, at 6:30 p.m., and we have bands booked for the Beer Barn.
Friday night’s band is Antics, a local favorite. New to us on Saturday night is Eric Burgett from Latham, a Nashville performer. We are very excited to have him perform at the Fair that evening and hope many people will come out to support him. There will be a special family section marked off so children will be able to stay and see Eric perform.
Besides those activities, we have our usual livestock and non-livestock shows.
Our General Exhibits (non-livestock) are to come in on Thursday, June 17 between 5:00 and 6:00 p.m.
These exhibits include 7 and Under entries, Junior entries, and Adult entries. All entries in Floriculture will be judged that evening while the flowers and plants are fresh. All other entries will be judged the next morning. All ages can start working on their artwork, crafts, sewing, and cooking to enter into the Fair!
Livestock shows include Dairy Cattle, Swine, and Beef Cattle.
Dairy will come in the evening of Thursday, June 17, and will be judged on Friday, June 18.
Swine will come in the evening of June 18 and will be judged on Saturday, June 19.
Beef Cattle may come in on Saturday evening and will be judged on Sunday, June 20.
Also at the Fair, the Piatt County Outlaw Hookers Antique Tractor Pull will be on the track on Sunday, June 20, starting at 11:00.
Capitol City Cornhole will have Bags tournaments, starting Friday evening through Saturday all day. Check out their facebook page for times and watch for our schedule to be published later.
In addition, there will be a cheerleading clinic performance Saturday morning, and Saturday afternoon the Cerro Gordo Preschool will be hosting a kickball tournament.
Our usual vendors will be at the Fair, so come enjoy the exhibits, animals, and entertainment. We are confident we can maintain social distancing and safety at these outdoor events.
