The Macon County Agricultural Fair will open its doors for another exciting four days from Wednesday September 17th through Saturday September 20th at the Macon County Fairgrounds. Along with entertainment at the pavilion, there will be Pet Shows, Poultry Shows, Livestock Shows and so much more. In the back area of the Wayne Proffitt Agricultural Center, you will find this years educational booths, along with the many entrants from the children from all over Macon County. There will also be some great local vendors, crafters and artisans with wonderfully unique products and services for you to look at and sometimes get your hands on for a test “run”.
Other areas of the Macon County Agricultural Fair are the floral, art, and photography contests. Entries will be received on Tuesday, September 16th from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm. No exhibits will be accepted after Tuesday. Once the doors open Wednesday at noon, you’ll be able to browse through all the winners and almost winners in each category and judge for yourself as well. Take your time walking around the educational booths, learning a little more about how things were done in a simpler time, and what we can pull from the ingenuity of those who came before us.
Don’t forget to walk around the animal’s enclosures and see how the animals are taken care of and how much work truly goes into taking care of just one animal in a herd of them, and compare that to the enormity of a working farm Our eyes can be opened a bit wider each year as we watch the young men and women of FFA, local farms and farming families all take part in the Macon County Agricultural Fair.
