One of my favorite things to do at the fair,  which I used to hate doing as a kid, is going through all the booths in the Grandstand.  It's like a gadget haven!  There is every single crazy, not needed, needed, useless and useful item you can possibly imagine.  A lot of those types of things that you never thought you ever needed, but once seeing it at the state fair, you are thinking... 'Hey, maybe I do need one of these'.  It's so fun.

This year, it seemed like all of that was going bye bye thanks again to the coronavirus.  First, there was the food parade with tickets that sold out within a couple of hours.  Now, there is this. The virtual version of shopping and getting cool "fair" gadgets online.

If there is something that you always wait until the fair to get, and the disappointment had come over you from the lack of a fair this year.  This is  definitely for you. Granted, it's not quite the same as wandering around and experiencing everything the fair has to offer in person, but at least it's something.

This online fair will include at least 250 vendors.  And all of those "how-to" showcases with baking, woodworking, gardening or whatever your interest is... there will be some of those too.  It's about as good as it can get without actually having a real in person fair.  There is a showcase page that will give you all the info on what is there, and also to submit an entry if you would like to be included.
