Enter Your Animals in the Fair
Calling all critters. We need you to come to the Springfield Fair and be an exhibitionist. We have wonderful accommodations – 10’ x 10’ stalls with plenty of fresh shavings. Crystal clear, ice cold water. Kids who will “ooh and aah” over you. Heck, you can even go to the bathroom where you stand and someone will clean it up for you. And, if you are lucky, you may even win some prize money – for just standing there. It sounds like a Joe Biden program – free money and no work. Animal Entry Form here.
Seriously though, we are working hard to try and fill our stalls. If you would like for you and your kids or grandkids to be a part of the 172nd Springfield Fair – call Kirk at 738-2888.

We are also hoping to fill our wonderful, old exhibit hall with handy work, crocheting, quilts, knitting, fresh vegetables, unique photos, farm displays or any other items that can help teach the younger generation how things were made and where food comes from. You probably won’t believe this but one of the soon to be new owners of the fairgrounds is sitting at home right now putting together a patchwork quilt. That’s right. I have it on “good authority” that Duston Gordon is a closet handy work specialist. And to add a bit more spice to the story – I was just sent a video of Clyde, in an apron, baking pies for our pie contest. He’s wearing pink bunny slippers, has his hair in curlers and is singing a Captain and Tenile song at the top of his lungs. Bless their hearts – how they do love the ole Springfield Fair!
So please, don’t be shy. If Dustin and Clyde can pitch in to help the fayuh…don’t ya think that you could too? Enter items in our exhibit hall. Bring some critters to display (call Kirk to reserve a stall at 738-2888). Join our baking contests. Participate. Have the kids and grandkids be a part of this smashin’ little agricultural fair. Turn off the electronics for the weekend and come out to the big city. There’s no road construction in Springfield! Just blue sky, green grass, clean country air and warm memories to be made with the family.
