Catch the demos at the Fair

there will be a wide variety of demonstrations in the Exhibit Hall at the NT Fall Fair and Rodeo

During the 64th Annual North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo, on all three days, there will be a wide variety of demonstrations in the Exhibit Hall.  Some of the demonstrations will include free handouts, others will include ‘make-and-take’ items for those who would like to try out the craft being demonstrated.

Topics to be talked about and demonstrated will include edible flowers (handouts), scrapbooking techniques (make-and-take), plastic canvas (make-and-take), painting, crocheting, and more.

Below is a tentative schedule, though please be advised that this schedule may change slightly prior to the Fair.  For each day’s list of demonstrations, check in at the Exhibit Hall where the day’s schedule will be posted.

For those who would like to be a demonstrator, there is still time to be included in the schedule, as some spots remain open.
