Farmer City Fair Recap

This weekend was the annual Farmer City Fair and organizers say despite the heat, they are very pleased with how the weekend went.


Fair Board President Curt Homann indicates they added a family night earlier in the week with lots of games and activities. It was a hit and they plan to bring it back again next year.



Homann has helped organize horse racing at the Farmer City Fair and the Friday night stock car races have helped make the Farmer City Fair unique. 



Ken Leonard took on the role of show manager for the Farmer City Fair horse show and he indicates there are several classes. He adds participants come from all over the area.



Lee Birkfield is the Superintendent of the Farmer City Fair goat show and says the goat show has been strong since the Illinois Dairy Goat's Association started in 1927. He says there are several incentives that keep participants coming back year after year.



Homann appreciates the community support for the show and notes everyone recognizes the economic driver the fair is for the community.
