The Trustees of the NEFFA welcome you to the fair!
Our theme this year is “Blue Jeans & Country Dreams.” I hope to see a lot of blue jeans and the cowboy boots from the 2013 fair on the fairgrounds this year. And, most of us have those country dreams of our country roots.
Experience has shown you enjoy and respect our past experiences in rural Nassau County. The hatching eggs and exhibit of the Historical Society in the Multi-Purpose Building were popular with fair visitors last year. We plan to expand on those types of exhibits this year. The typical farm animals – chickens, rabbits, goats, sheep, cows, and pigs are always crowd pleasing reminders of when most folks had animals in the backyard. The shows and contests for the animals are in this book and visitors are welcome.
The produce exhibits in the Women’s Building encourage green thumbs to plant a garden. The Women’s Building has exhibits of jams & jellies, baking, canning and handiwork. And, the school booths are amazing – so much imagination. Come see what your area school has done with the theme, “Blue Jeans & Country Dreams” with plastic cups and cotton balls.
We continue to add to the Old Time Village. We have a new shed and plan on agricultural demonstrations and entertainment during the fair. And, our fair would not be complete without the entertainment. Plan to eat with friends under the tent and keep time with the musicians and entertainers.
We Trustees have contagious excitement for our fair and hope you catch it!
