Things to Do - Fall is State Fair Time! - (AgrAbility Virtual State Fair Oct. 1-30)

My family always enjoyed going to our State Fair each fall. Perhaps you did too.

Maybe you were a 4-H member, showing off the lamb or rabbit you had raised over the summer. Perhaps you were a baker or gardener and entered several contests. Or you might be the person who wandered through the livestock pavilions and quickly found the food tents to stock up on giant turkey legs, fried butter, and cotton candy.

Whatever your reason, State Fair time has always been fun for all family members.

During the month of October this year, you can attend a Virtual State Fair hosted by AgrAbility.

AgrAbility serves farmers, ranchers, and others who work in production agriculture who have disabilities, functional limitations, or are members of certain minority populations (e.g., African Americans, Native Americans, Hispanic/Latino agricultural workers, and veterans). It also serves their families and the communities they live in, supporting rural America. AgrAbility state projects provide information and resources related to employment, assistive technology, rehabilitation, and caregiver support.

Beginning with an introduction to AgrAbility on Thursday, Oct. 1, the Virtual State Fair schedule includes weekend special topic focus days and reports from various state projects. Daily Virtual State Fair content will be posted on Facebook and Twitter.

Let’s all go to the Virtual State Fair in October!
