2017 will be the 161st Annual Fall Fair. The theme this year is “Wild Things”. The Exhibitor Prize book will be out by mid-May so members can start to plan their exhibits. The new and updated website is a wealth of information and should be checked regularly for new posts.
Paisley Fall Fair has become well known as one of the very best traditional rural fall fairs in the area. From the large livestock shows, impressive draft horse shows, delicious food, musical entertainment, inclusive kids events, hands-on Agricultural Education tent, and a Palace full of the most talented homecraft exhibitors, this is a fair not to be missed.
This is a great family event that won’t cost much money.
