Items handmade or grown in Ripley County will be available for purchase in the vending area.

Kids of all ages will love interactive activities from Kids Discovery Factory and Batesville Public Library’s Pioneer Days. Local high school students will perform choral presentations throughout the afternoon.

The Daughters of the American Revolution will dedicate a memorial plaque in honor of Revolutionary War soldiers from Ripley County.

Attendees can vote for the best of show from the Ripley County Fourth Grader’s Map Project. Fourth graders throughout the county were challenged to work together on a project to design a wooden cut-out in the shape of Ripley County with the help of their history and art teachers. The maps will be on display at local historical societies, museums, and libraries through April 14th before being voted on at the Fairgrounds during the April 15th celebration.

This event is free and open to all, rain or shine.
