Centreville Fair (St. Joseph County Grange Fair) in Centreville 2017
The Centreville Fair is the week of September 17-23, 2017. Cattle must be in place Sunday ( by 3 pm to check in your cattle if you have any changes) and are released Saturday night at midnight. (most of us leave first thing Sunday morning.) This year the show is on Tuesday, following the 4-H beef show. We request that we show last of the beef breeds, so that generally is anywhere from 2pm-5 pm depending on the number of other entries, but it could be earlier if numbers are down. We do have a crew on hand to take care of your animals during the entire week if there are days you cannot make it in. Obviously, you have to be there on show day. It is a great agricultural fair with a tremendous number of people going through the barns every day. Although not as generous as it used to be, after the State cut funding, the fair still pays premiums for every class except the Champion classes.
It is necessary to mail entries to The St Joseph County Grange Fair
($5.00 per animal entered plus $3.00 per class entered) and mail or email a
separate entry for the MWHCA/AHCA sanctioned portion of the show ($5.00 per
animal entered) to:
