Mark your calendars! Scott County Agricultural Society’s Fourth Annual AutumnFare is scheduled for Saturday, October 1. For the second year in a row, Ag Society will be hosting an always-delicious Farmer’s breakfast. You may pre-purchase tickets for the breakfast from the Scott County Fair office, or purchase them on October 1 (the day of the event) for a slightly higher cost.
Last year, they featured their first apple pie contest and pie auction. This year, they will expand this to include pumpkin pie. There’s more information on the breakfast and the contests on the Scott County Fair website.
Belle Plaine FFA will be in attendance with the FFA trailer, providing agricultural education and entertainment for everyone, particularly for families with children. Staff from The Landing in Shakopee will be in period costumes of the late 1800s, demonstrating and talking about pioneer life, farming, campfire cooking, and gardening. There will be demonstrations scheduled throughout the day in the cattle barn by local farmers. The Creative Arts Building will be full of local fiber producers and artists, as well as wood artists and a variety of other local artisans. Sand Creek Riders Saddle Club will be holding a tack swap in one of the commercial buildings. They will have vendors in the commercial building as well.
And don’t forget to bring your shopping bags and coolers and plan to do some shopping at Autumn Fare!
