To make light of a tough year for fairs, carnivals, and just about any public gathering, the Grain Valley Fair Committee asked residents to suggest a new name for this year’s modified fair. Many suggestions were offered via social media with similar themes involving social distancing, masks, and the unfairness of the situation.
Natalie Knox suggested “The No Fair! Fair” and won a $50 dining credit at the fair for her creativity.
The Grain Valley Fair is scheduled for Friday, September 11th and Saturday, September 12th at Armstrong Park. The carnival and parade have been canceled, as have most of the non-food related vendors. Food trucks will be on site on Friday evening and Saturday. A select number of non-food related vendors are planned for Saturday as well.
The 3rd Annual Grain Valley 5K is accepting registrations for both its in-person and virtual options. For more information on the Fair and the 5K, visit www.grainvalleyfair.com.
