The Michigan Dept. of Ag Rural Development has awarded the Gogebic County Fair a grant to replace the windows and doors in the expo building. R.E.D. Construction of Ironwood was awarded the bid to install the windows and the work was done this spring. Thanks to everyone involved in securing this grant for our fairgrounds. We think that this was a needed and is a great improvement to one of the original buildings.
When the Friends of the Fair get to the fair early in the morning there is one thing they were missing, Breakfast. so, they decided to fix that problem.
With everything a growing fairgoer needs to fuel their busy day at the fair, Jeannie Walston and her crew will have it and are ready to serve you in the Multi-Purpose Building.
Breakfast is served on Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings from 7am-11am. So, come on down and start your day off right!
Once again, this year fairgoers can enjoy Horse Drawn Wagon Rides at the fair thanks to the generosity of Bob Johnson and the Barber Road Stables.
Bob will be at the fair with the wagon and horses giving FREE rides to interested fairgoers from the West parking area into the grounds and back. This is one great experience that you don't want to miss!
Look for them on Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the fair.
