Running from from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, August 25 and Sunday, August 26, you can even show up beginning at 9 a.m. on Sunday for a donations-welcome pancake breakfast lasting until 11 a.m. Munch on a local ear of sweet corn as you take in sheep shearing, livestock demonstrations, chainsaw carving, an antique tractor parade, and pie-eating contests.
