The Simsbury Grange will host its annual Agricultural Fair on Saturday, Sept. 15, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The fair will feature a bake and craft sale, exhibits from local organizations and farms, kids’ activities, and contests with ribbons and cash prizes in several categories. Entertainment will be provided by folk musician Bill Benson, a singer/songwriter from Collinsville who plays a variety of acoustic folk rock and is known for his ballads and smooth, strong vocal style.
The community is invited to participate as an exhibitor and/or as an entrant in one of the many categories. Limited table spaces are available. Exhibitors charged $25; nonprofits exhibiting only (no sale items), no charge.
Several contests with ribbons and cash prizes will be held. Categories for adults: fruits and vegetables; home arts—quilting, sewing, knitting, jamming, canning; baked goods; flowers and plants. Categories for children: vegetables; LEGO creations; baked goods; two-dimensional art (original art and photography). Online registration is available by visiting simsburygrange.org/simsburyfairentry.asp.
