The 79th Pine Orchard Fair will be held September 9 from 9am till 7pm at the Pine Orchard Community building located at 2906 Airport Road in Oakdale.
We will have exhibits of homegrown produce, fruits, sewing, canned goods, flowers and other homemade projects. We will be taking chances on a handmade quilt to be raffled off that evening. There will be music in the afternoon of gospel, bluegrass and country by local musicians. There will be turkey and dressing or ham plate lunches as well as homemade desserts starting at 11 am. We will also be selling hamburgers and hot dogs and barbecue sandwiches.
The Pine Orchard Community Fair was started in 1938 and we think it may be one of the longest continuing fairs of this type in the area. As this is just a small community fair there are no rides unless a neighbor does a hayride around the grounds. All monies that are made from the fair goes to the upkeep of the building. This building is used by the community for baby and wedding showers, birthday parties, family and class reunions as well as wedding receptions.
