9th Annual May Fair Event & Sale
9th Annual May Fair Event & Sale
The 9th Annual May Fair Event & Sale will be held Mother’s Day weekend, Saturday, May 12th at the St Croix County Fairgrounds in Glenwood City, WI. Sponsored by the St. Croix County 4-H Dairy, Horse & Livestock Committees and the Friends of the St. Croix County Fairgrounds, the May Fair Event & Sale offers fun for the entire family along with the opportunity to help support retiring the loan on the new Horse Barn. Doors will open at 4 PM with the program starting promptly at 5 PM. The building will be heated as necessary. The Fairgrounds is home to the St. Croix County Fair and the St. Croix Valley PRCA Rodeo. The Fairgrounds is also used for a wide variety of county and community events from April to October.
The May Fair Event & Sale is appropriately named after a similar event started in the 1680’s in what is now the Mayfair District of London. The original May Fair coupled a cattle sale along with a boisterous community celebration running annually for the first 15 days of May to celebrate the beginning of spring.
The St. Croix County Event, although a bit tamer, will feature live entertainment by 4-H Talent Acts, RJ Amundson, Bruce Libby and the Blue Moon Band. Additionally there will be special events for children along with a free-will offering dinner catered by Ruth Hurtgen. The live and silent auctions will feature a broad range of items ranging from professional sports tickets to beautiful Circle H flower baskets for Mom. Some of the items donated include agricultural supplies, veterinary services and supplies, equine tack, automotive services, restaurant certificates, salon packages, yard decorations, art etc. – truly something for everyone! All of the proceeds will go towards retiring the loan on the Horse Barn – with a stretch objective of celebrating retirement at this year’s Fair. Also the winner(s) of the 2018 4-H Dairy Heritage Calf will be announced; several check presentations received plus special recognition of Fair supporters.
Thanks to the continued outstanding support of the entire County including 4-H Clubs and the Fair family, great progress has been made in the Renovations for Generations Campaign– and much remains to be done. Completed projects include construction of the Dairy Complex, Horse Barn, Livestock Scale House, and the Tiffany Creek Pavilion plus the addition of an electronic billboard. In discussion is construction of the Livestock Barn, a multispecies building & show ring.
The St. Croix County Fairgrounds is on the move with its capital campaign, “Renovations for the Generations”. Bring your family to this fun event and help us ensure continuation of this important piece of our cultural and agricultural heritage!!!
