ELLSWORTH -- The Pierce County Fair is planning and preparing for the “four best days of summer” Aug. 12-15. “100 Years of the Round Barn and Pierce County 4-H” is this year’s theme.
The Fair Board said in a news release it is closely monitoring the health situation daily and, based on current improving conditions, is hopeful to bring back the fun in 2021.
“Now more than ever, we need to come together and be #FairStrong,” the release said.
New exhibitors in the Open Class Division are welcome. Residents from Pierce, St. Croix, Dunn and Pepin counties are eligible to exhibit.
There will be 16 open classes ranging from Little Dairyman to Charolais bull calves, Little Shepherd to Pekin ducks, alfalfa to flowers, oil painting to crafts, photography to cakes, breads to quilts, homemade wines to homebrew beer. The full listing is on pages 100-124 in the fairbook.
To enter, fill out the entry blank found in the Pierce County Fair book on page 13 and submit your entry by 4:30 p.m. June 21 to the Fair Office in the Seyforth Building on the fairgrounds in Ellsworth or postmarked by the deadline. The board is using the 2019-2020 Fairbook for 2021 as a cost saving measure.
