COMMUNITY CENTER EXHIBITS
Take time during Fair Week to explore the hundreds of exhibits in the Community Building! The building is open every day beginning Tuesday, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Anyone and everyone are welcome to display their talents during the Fair Week! Whether it’s photography, antiques, knitting, sewing, quilting, crocheting, baking or flower arranging, we have a spot for you inside the Community Building. There is no entry fee for your items and premiums are paid for first, second and third places. Bring items to the Community Building on dates announced in Fair Time magazine.
For more information, call the Fair office at (231) 347-1010.
After the excitement and interest generated last year with Emmet-Charlevoix County Fair’s debut of Bricktown, Justin Pankey is bringing his traveling, rotating LEGO® city display back in 2019. The display features various layouts created by Pankey. The builds offer a colorful, creativity-inspiring experience for both children and adults alike. Don’t miss these displays all week at the Fair!
IS BACK FOR 2021!
The Fair welcomes back the Firefighter Show this year, offering kids the chance to see what it takes to be a firefighter! Shows will be Tuesday, Aug. 24, through Saturday, Aug. 28, with three shows daily taking place on the children’s stage area near the Fair office.
Kids in the audience will be selected as volunteers! After being fitted in firefighter jacket and helmet, the new trainees are introduced to the audience as their next generation of heroes. When the alarm tones sound calling Engine One to duty, it’s all hands on deck!
LIVESTOCK SHOWS & AUCTIONS
Local 4-H youth spend countless hours preparing for the livestock shows and auctions that take place during Fair Week; it represents the culmination of so much hard work, and it also helps to fund many of these youth’s future educational pursuits.
