It offers a week long schedule of events and exhibits for all ages. Many residents enjoy submitting their goods for exhibition and competition. The grange hall exhibits beautiful arrangements of fruits and vegtables, needle crafts, and other agricultural goods.
Beginning in 2002 restoration efforts have begun to repair this beloved fairground, as some of the buildings-such as the Grange- are originals built in 1879. Other recent features include the construction of the Nichols Band Shell, which will provide free musical entertaiment. To visit the Hillsdale County Fair website click here,
