I don’t know about you, but I can hardly believe we are less than a month away from the 2022 Stephenson County fair. At the Farm Bureau office, we are gearing up to be back under our tent hosting our annual Farm Fun Zone. We are excited to welcome back our animal section, hands on activities, and information about Farm Bureau membership and our programs and activities. We hope you are planning on joining us for one or all of the events we host during the fair.
- Tuesday, July 26 through Saturday, July 30: Farm Fun Zone open 11:00a.m.-9:00p.m.
- Thursday, July 28 at 7:00p.m.: Ag Olympics at the FHN Grandstands
