Many groups behind Wadena Fair

Many groups are getting together to put on the Wadena Town and Country Fair on Sept. 1-2 with two fun filled days of activities and events.

“We tried to include as many people who wanted to be included as possible, anybody who wanted to pitch in and take advantage of the weekend. We just wanted a nice, full weekend,” says organizer, Sarah Sobchyshyn.

Everyone pulls together to make sure the fair is a success, she says.

Included this year will be the demolition derby, show and shine, and farmer’s market, as well as fireworks and Brat, a Wadena based band, capping off Saturday, with chariot and chuckwagon races, gymkhana, and co-ed slo-pitch tournament taking place on Sunday.

Around 700 people took in the weekend fun during the 2017 fair, which was a good number, says Sobchyshyn.

“It’s nice because it is the last weekend before everyone gets back into a routine. Lots of people still stick around who don’t go to the lake.”
