Winter Fair
January 28, 2019

The Friends of the Fair announce the first Washington WINTER County Fair on March 2. During the 2018 county fair, the chainsaw carving auction was cancelled due to the Thursday night storm. The proceeds from that auction go towards 4-H enrollment fees and are critical to the 4-H budget. This “Washington Winter County Fair” event is a great opportunity to gather Fair friends to enjoy time together without chores and a busy fair schedule—and enjoy a night out together and give to Washington County 4-H.  Click here for flyer.
