From sunup to sundown there will be plenty of things to keep you busy – like games, trains and cultural-feels. Don’t miss out!

January 25th – Fix It Fair

The objective of this event is to create a self-sufficient society while creating connections between individual community members. At the Fix It Fair, you will learn to save money on utilities, make important household updates, grow your own food, and minimize your carbon footprint – yourself! Think about the neighborhood you live in – there are people inside all those homes! People with their own interests and life experiences. People who can teach us a thing or two! Got something to share? Then head on down to Fix It Fair!

Get first dibs on the latest action, and a sneak peak into what’s coming in 2020! This is a three-day event with TONS to see!

Nothing shouts yesteryear like an old fashioned model train. If you’re looking for a family friendly dose of nostalgia, you’re going to love the Great Train Show!
