Dust off your boots and grab your favorite flannel shirt for some good ol’ country fun on May 12 and 13 right here in the neighborhood.
The Country Fair is bringing all of the elements of a fantastic country fair right here to our backyard. Enjoy games, carnival rides, food and fun while simultaneously building community and funding important programs for our schools. The Country Fair proceeds benefit both San Elijo Elementary and Double Peak Schools and it is an amazing example of what happens when our community comes together in the spirit of giving.
Friday, May 12, 5 – 8PM
Saturday, May 13, 11AM – 5PM
We can’t wait to see you at the Country Fair this year. The fun takes place on Friday evening, May 12 from 5-8PM and all day Saturday, May 13 from 11AM – 5PM.
This is a pretty amazing event. 100% volunteer-run and community supported. You don’t want to miss it. In fact, you just might want to roll up your sleeves and get involved in helping. There are lots of ways to participate.
And, you don’t have to be a kid to enjoy this event! There is something for everyone – kids, parents, grandparents, neighbors and friends. The Country Fair draws more than 8,000 people from San Elijo Hills and surrounding areas. It is an amazing day full of family fun and community pride.
The Country Fair is a joint effort to benefit both San Elijo Elementary and Double Peak Schools and plays an important role both in raising funds for school programs as well as building a stronger sense of community.
Much like last year, this year’s Country Fair will be packed with fun for all ages. On Friday night from 5-8PM, the Fair will open for an evening of carnival rides, DJ, food and more. From there, the fun continues all day Saturday from 11AM – 5PM with more than 30 games to choose from, giant inflatables (including Wipeout), hand-led pony rides, live animals, dozens of arts and crafts, and big rides like Hurricane, Paratrooper, Zumur and Round Up.
Beyond all of the rides and games, art will be on display from all of the kids at both schools. You will also have the opportunity to bid on a variety of absolutely amazing custom-designed baskets filled with a collection of themed products and services – everything from a Taste of Italy and Cooking to Star Wars, Legos, Animal Lovers, Disney, Sports, Spa Day, Turf & Surf, Staycations and more.
For a preview of all of the baskets, go to www.TheCountryFair2017.com.
And, don’t forget the Bake Sale. The entire community is invited to participate. Share your favorite family recipe by baking and donating your goodies. You can drop off your baked goods at San Elijo Elementary on May 12. All donations are welcome.
Of course, there will be giant inflatables and you can also win a Giant Donut Plush at the Prize Walk.
Leave room in your days to have a bite to eat from a variety of local food vendors. Hit the main stage for grade-level performances and good old-fashioned games or rock the night away Friday Night with the DJ, food and carnival rides. And, there will be plenty of photo opportunities to capture all of the memories.
Because this event is entirely volunteer-run, there can never be too many hands. If you’d like to volunteer some time to assist before, during or after the event, please reach out. There are also some great sponsorship opportunities and donations are always welcome!
