Clayton County Fair Purple Ribbon Fundraiser
The Clayton County Fairboard is hosting their 2nd Annual Purple Ribbon Fundraiser to help support the daily activities and costs of the 2019 Clayton County Fair. Without community support, the Clayton County Fair would not be what it has been in the past and in the future! Your ticket purchase to the fundraiser will get you in the door, a great meal provided by Johnson’s Reception Hall, and a chance at door prizes. During the meal, you will have the opportunity to participate in a silent auction, 50/50 raffle, and listen to a guest speaker. After the meal, you will have the opportunity to participate in a live auction. Auction items will consist of gift baskets, seed and fertilizer, services provided by local businesses/farmers, and other various items!
