THE LAMOILLE COUNTRY FAIR
SUNDAY, JUNE 27TH, 2021, 8am UNTIL 4pm, the Lamoille Country Fair will enlighten the community of Lamoille Nevada and bring sights and sounds of excitement for all family members after a year of restrictions. It will be a day the whole family can come out and enjoy the sunshine, food, shopping and children’s activities. The Lamoille Women have added more in town parking for the convenience of our Fair Goers. One Block from the Grove turn LEFT after O’Carroll’s and before the Post Office onto Country Lane. Follow the flags and signs, for Free Parking or a donation, if you wish, to the Spring Creek High School Athletics Teams. From this Parking enjoy a very short walk with no road traffic up Dear Lane to the top of the Fair. There is the Scout previous to the Grove on Primrose Lane to the right for a fee of $5. No vehicle traffic will be allowed on Clubhouse Lane where our food vendors will be; the Clubhouse Grounds and Grove and will be completely full of Vendors.
The Fair has become one of the more popular craft extravaganzas in Elko County. Admission is free to visit the large selection of vendors and crafters in both the Clubhouse yard and Lamoille Grove. Our vendors this year will include woodworking, wooden whirligigs, repurposed antiques, specialty goat soaps, soy soaps, leather products, Elko County produced agriculture products, metal arts, hand sewn bags and clothing items, pottery, handmade knives, jewelry, repurposed animal horns, and many more items of interest to the whole family.
Just for the children, there will be a Kid’s Area across the bridge in the Grove, provided by the Event Source. There you will find slides, games, bounce houses, popcorn and cotton candy provided by the Event Source Team. They are professionals at entertainment. All the activities will be supervised by adults and trained individuals. Happy Faces will be on the premises for face painting. For the kids, up by the Club House Tom’s mini trains will again provide rides for the children. Across the street from the Clubhouse will be an “Old Time John Deer tractor” that has been repurposed to make ice cream. These treats will delight the whole Family.
Up and down Clubhouse lane, for the thirsty, there is the Lamoille Women’s Club Famous Lemonade in two different places on Clubhouse Lane. The Lemonade is freshly squeezed, poured over ice and topped off with a leaf of fresh mint and a lemon slice. Snow cones are available too, from the food vendors. The food booths are one of the most popular items at the Fair. We have Indian Tacos, Bar B Que, Tacos and other venders providing hamburgers, hot dogs and tasty delights.
Please don’t for forget to stop at the Lamoille Women’s Quilt Booth and pick up a ticket for the opportunity to win the Fair Quilt made by our Treasurer Charlene, Mitchel; Quilted by Terry Bowers of Ruby Valley. Get your tickets early as the drawing will be held at precisely at 3:30. You might even be selected to pick the winning ticket, if you are by the quilt at the time. This year’s quilt, “Star Light, Star Bright” is absolutely stunning. The women still have a few cookbooks for sale and will be glad to show you those. We also have our own brand of “Covid 19 Lemonade” at the quilt table for $1.00”. While viewing this year’s quilt, visit with our members about information to join Lamoille Women’s Club.
