Again this August the Van Wert Fairgrounds will be hosting the Buy-Way Sale. The dates are August 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th. Time for the sale to start will be at 9:00am and run till 6:00pm or later. Set up will be on Tuesday the 2nd from 9:00am till 6:00pm. There are still spaces available both inside and outside.
This is the 24th year for the World’s Longest Yard Sale and it will be the 7th year for the Van Wert Fairgrounds to participate in this Sale. It started out with just 4 people doing the sale in the big Commercial Building, each year we grew to be bigger and better. Last year we went from having the Commercial building full, to the EMR and Auxiliary Room also full. This year we are on our way to adding more buildings to the sale. We also have food vendors now for all to enjoy. This year we will be having pony rides, and barrel train ride, for the kids right now, we are looking for more for the kids.
And don’t forget that the Lincoln Hwy. Sale will also be going on this weekend. Van Wert is the only place in the State of Ohio or if you want to go further in the United States that the two Highways cross. So if you want to-do something Historic on this weekend drive both highways and see the how the two sales compare.
1st United Brethren will be having their popcorn people there along with some caramels this year. Then we will be having Don the potato man with his baked potatoes, a new wagon which is the Pretzel Lady if you was at the fair you will remember her. Gibson BBQ will be there with their Pulled pork, pulled chicken and Rib and chicken dinners. Then on Saturday they will be leaving early to participate in the Rib Cook Off this will be their first year at both events. TK Mobil Foods will be there also with their deep fried curds and vegetables.
We will also be adding an information booth this year that will help you with information on things going on at the Fairgrounds and the surrounding area. Also you will be able to purchase the baskets for the Fair and the Veterans Day Basket for support of Veterans Day at the Fair. There will also be forms for Fair Patrons with the sign from last year to let you see how we will display the names.
