  1. What time will the grandstand be open to put chairs down for the Thursday night performance? My husband and I both have back issues and can’t stand for very long. Thanks.

    How can a business owner sign up for the meat animal sale on Thursday?

    • Fair Assoc says:

      Tonya, we’ll have to forward your email to the UW Extension Office in Juneau. Hopefully, they can reply here or send us the info so we can share. If you don’t hear anything by middle of the day Tuesday, August 15 please call 920-386-3790 for details.
