Come join the family fun, with carriage rides, a giant slide, cider pressing, sheep shearing, live music, and fresh food — a great time is sure to be had by all!

Designed to celebrate local farming and community, the fair draws several thousand guests of all ages. In this episode of What’s Up Bainbridge, Friends of the Farms Executive Director Heather Burger talks with BCB host Bob Ross about the history and importance of this much-anticipated yearly gathering.
