PRICE COUNTY FAIR RETURNS WITH THREE DAYS FULL OF ENTERTAINMENT [Article #1]

"We are so enthused that we can bring you the 135th Price County Fair this year! We could not do this without all the wonderful sponsors we have in our community," stated Denae Walcisak, Entertainment and Fundraising Chair on the Price County Fair Board of Directors.

Denae explained that the fair will look a little different this year. First and foremost, it will be held on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday; three days rather than the recent five days. "Being two buildings down we had to get creative and work with what we have and use outside resources, as well," she said. The fair will be prepping on Wednesday and Thursday with Wednesday, August 25th, being the day for 4-H and Open Class exhibit and animal drop-offs only. Thursday, August 26th, will be judging day for exhibits and animals for 4-H and Open Class only. "Some of the animals will have to be hauled and trailered there the same day, so we want to reduce traffic for safety reasons and to have less stress on people and animals," Denae further explained.

Another reason the fair will look a little different this year is due to the loss of the Open Class Building and a partial loss of the barn. While the county is not necessarily planning to remove the barn, they did gather bids for a complete removal of the barn so they are prepared financially if that is what needs to happen. Since the county owns the fairgrounds, all the building decisions are made by the county rather than the fair board.

Board Chairperson, Michelle Drobnik, explained the status of the buildings in regard to this year's fair. "They did tear down the Open Class Building. It was deemed not structurally sound, so we are in the process of turning the Northwoods Building into the Open Class Building for this year. The exhibits will be in there, but we have to get a little creative since the old Open Class Building was a rather large building. The cow barn is deemed that we cannot use it. They did tear the one wing off that had collapsed due to snow," Michelle explained. Since the 4-H Market Animal Sale cannot take place in the barn this year, it will be held on Friday in a 40' x 80' tent located near the horse arena. There will likely be 27 large animals up for auction with the possibility of poultry and rabbits also on the auction block. Registration and appreciation will begin at 6:30 p.m., and the sale will start at 7 p.m. The horse barn, though it recently had a tree go through the roof, has been repaired and will be utilized as normal.

As for the entertainment that will take place from Friday, August 27 through Sunday, August 29, 2021, K&M Rides & Amusements will be at the fairgrounds providing carnival rides and games. You can also expect to see Dan Kirk, the Juggler with the Yellow Shoes on Friday and Saturday and family entertainment from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day. The Horse Pulls and Farm Olympics will also take place on Sunday.

Those in attendance can also enjoy the Ohrstrom School, better known as the old log school house, where Mr. Jake from the Phillips Public Library will speak about the history of Price County and read books to the school children. There will also be a retired teacher at the school. According to Bev Brayton, "Right now we are busy cleaning the building and have spent time creating and putting up posters that the children/students from the past had learned specific poems. We will also have the two books available about the Country School Recollections that tell stories about the one room schools in the county and lists of teachers from those schools. We will be available to answer questions and want the visitors to sign the guest register so we can report to the other members of our organization where the visitors are from. We hope to have many from out of the area and from out of state and those who have had the experience of attending a one room school."

On all three days, the Butterfly and Insect Interactive Display and the Phillips Children's Museum will be at the fairgrounds. Food, vendors, face painting, and more fun activities will also be enjoyed by fairgoers.

There will be lots of music to enjoy. On Friday, there will be a karaoke contest at 5 p.m. Those interested in participating can register by printing the form on the fair's website or filling out a form at the fair at 4:30 p.m. Tom Katalin and Highway 41, a country music band, will perform from 8 p.m. until midnight on Friday. Shane Kronberger, haling from Park Falls, covering classic rock, country, and original music, will perform from 6 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, with headliner Alec Davis, featuring a blend of country and southern rock, following up until midnight. Alec Davis is known for a crowd-pleasing experience. Elvis John, an Elvis Presley impersonator, will perform an Elvis tribute show on Sunday from 1 to 2:30 p.m. filled with energy and audience interaction.

Fairgoers can enjoy the fair for $5 per day for ages three and up. The cost, if you also want to enjoy the rides, is $15 per day on Friday and Saturday and $10 on Sunday. Children two and under are admitted to the fair free of charge. The gates open at 9 a.m. on all three days, and the gates close at midnight on Friday and Saturday and 5 p.m. on Sunday.
