The Indiana State Fair starts this Friday and runs through Sunday, August 19th. This is our state’s annual celebration of farms and farmers with a whole lot of fun and food.

This year’s theme is “Step Right Up: The greatest 17 days of summer” featuring a single-ring world-class circus. There will be 3 free shows per day showcasing a variety of world-famous performers.

You’ll also find all the usual attractions including the midway, agricultural and animal exhibits and competitions, live music, and tons and tons of fair food.  With ample parking, shuttle buses, educational opportunities, and more, it’s fun for the whole family.

One of the featured farmers this year is Redbud Farm and Caprini Creamery – also one of our BRFM vendors. You’ll find Kristi and Mike at the Glass Barn for a farmer chat at 2:30 on August 17th. See their writeup here.
