The 124th Sandwich Fair will be held this Wednesday through Sunday, September 7-11, at the Sandwich Fairgrounds in Sandwich. Always held Wednesday-Sunday the week of Labor Day, gates for DeKalb County’s fair open at 8 a.m. and buildings open at 9 a.m.
Some of the things that make this fair so great are: Bargain Days and Carnival Special Wristband Hours. Come enjoy the Giant Carnival Midway, Arts & Crafts, Livestock Judging, Free Parking, Fay’s BBQ, Commercial Exhibits, Western Horse Speed Show, FFA Farm Zoo, Draft Horse Show, Antique Farm Equipment, Free Entertainment, Harness Racing, IVT Melodramas and beautiful tree lined Fair Grounds!
2011 Grandstand events include on Wednesday at 6:30pm, the U.S. FMX National Championship Series. Don’t miss the highflying excitement of motorcycle stunts with the U.S. FMX National Championship Series: the only national championship title that is decided by performing aerial stunts while launching motorcycles 70’+ feet through the air! The nation’s top riders return to defend their titles as champions of extreme sports. See why Freestyle Motocross reigns king among fans of extreme sports with spectacular mid-air maneuvers and insane back flips.
On Thursday at 6:30pm will be the National Tractor Pullers Association Sanctioned Truck Pulls. Friday at 8:00pm country music star Craig Morgan takes the stage. As Music Row’s Bob Oermann wrote, “Craig Morgan is country music’s champion of the Everyman—a loyal husband and father, unblushingly sentimental, tough enough to kick your butt if you cross him, and the kind of friend everyone would like to have.”
Saturday at both 12:30pm and 6:30pm Tractor Pulls again rock the Grandstand. On Sunday at both 1:00pm and 3:00pm are the always fun to watch Demolition Derbies. The International Demolition Derby is promoted as an unusual spectator attraction. In the interest of safety, Drivers and Mechanics are subject to, and must obey, rules and regulations which are set up by the promoter and the track.
