Countdown Continues!!!

It's only 9 days to go. The deadline for all exhibitor entry forms was today, Wednesday September 23rd. Things are in high gear now. It's definitely crunch time. With only one weekend to go, the pressure's on. The buildings are being set up for all the animals to arrive. This weekend vendors will start coming in. The main exhibit building and Youth in Action will be getting ready for all the displays to arrive.
Tag nights are being held on Monday, September 29th and Tuesday, September 30th at the Harwinton Library on Bentley Road from 6:30 pm on. All are welcome to come and give a hand.
Tags for exhibitors can be picked up on October 2nd,Thursday evening from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. This is for PICK UP ONLY. This gives anyone with a lot of entries time to get them organized. Then on Friday evening tags can be picked up and exhibits brought into the buildings until 8 p.m. Tags will also be available on Saturday morning from 8 am to 9:15 am. All exhibitors must have their items tagged and entered in the buildings by Saturday, no later than 9:30 am for judging.
We're all looking forward to another great Harwinton Fair. Come and be a part of 152 years of celebration at the best country fair in Litchfield County.
