Press Releases from the Johnson County Fair:

This year’s Johnson County Fair will host a new contest open to area quilters. The Open Block Contest will feature an “Old Time Country Fair” theme. Contestants will each submit a 12″ X 12″ block for judging on July 6 from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. with premiums paid for first, second, and third places. After the fair, the blocks will be made into a quilt which will be raffled off at a future date.

The Johnson County Fair will once again give the opportunity to show off your home-made and home-grown products. Do you bake a great chocolate chip cookie? Are you famous for your jelly? Do you have a knack for needlework? Are you artistic? Do you have a green thumb? Bring the fruits of your labor to the fair!

Open exhibits in foods, sewing and needlework, fine arts, farm crops and garden produce will be accepted at the fair from 4: 30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 6. Ribbons and premium money will be awarded for the first three places in each category.
