Kickapoo Country Fair, La Farge, July 26

From the brochure about the Kickapoo Country Fair:

Let’s go to the Kickapoo Country Fair, located at the world headquarters of Organic Valley in La Farge, Wisconsin. The theme for the 6th annual event is Celebrating a Sustainable Future, which fair organizers say will be “a celebration of the simple things that make for a life rich in beauty, culture and connections, whether to the land, our past or the surrounding community.”

When people think of a “fair” they usually envision carnival rides and midway games, cotton candy, deep-fried food and corn dogs. The Kickapoo Country Fair, however, is not your typical fair! Although it does have a festive atmosphere, the fair features a variety of workshops in sustainable living, a venue for “green” organizations and businesses, includes several food tents with natural, organic, local, and sustainable foods, plus farm tours, all-day music and entertainment, many child-friendly activities and much, much more. The whole family will experience a day filled with fun activities, stimulating workshops, panel discussions, and great food—all amidst the beautiful hills of the Kickapoo River Valley!
