Preparations for the 95th annual Yorktown Grange Fair are underway. This year’s theme, “Back to the Garden,” pays tribute to the contributions that local farmers, backyard gardeners, home crafters, and artisans make to the community.
There’s nothing like winning a blue ribbon, and now is a great time to start planning your entry into the Grange Fair’s many contests for adults and kids of all ages. From Sept. 6 to Sept. 8, the Yorktown Grange Fairgrounds will be abuzz with community togetherness and friendly competition.
From Grange Fair staples like produce, poultry, livestock and flower contests to contemporary options like Lego and photography shows, there is something for everyone to participate in. New for 2019, the Grange Fair will be adding a Rabbit Show. Kids ages 8-19 will be able to show off how they care for and raise their adorable furry friends. There are also opportunities for kids and adults to show off their needlework or baking skills. With multiple divisions and a variety of contests, anyone—from beginner to expert—can come “Back to the Garden” with the Yorktown Grange Fair.
