Great News for the Saginaw County Fair Horse Department! We have completed the main 100’x 300’ arena with new sand and fencing, moved the announcers booth to the west side of the arena for visibility of entire arena, completed a 80’ x 100’ warm up arena AND been awarded the adjacent 60’ x 100’ white barn that can hold 32 additional stalls!!!
But we need your help! We are seeking sponsorships to help raise the $10,000 to purchase used stalls from another fairground to put in the new barn. If you or your business would like to donate, Please contact Superintendent Patti Copes at 989-213-4220 to request a “Partnership Package”. You can be a stall sponsor for as little as $300!
We are in need of Volunteers for shows and building/arena/grounds maintenance, also to just be part of our fun committee!

Gypsy Goddess a Success
Thanks to all those that turned out for this years Gypsy Goddess Festival (all 3000 of you) that helped make this years festival a success.
The Saginaw County Fair is honored to announce that they will be sponsoring the State of Michigan Homemaker competition in 2016 and 2017 during the county fair. Plans are being made to make this an event not to be missed!
Eligible candidates are those who won a county homemaker title last year at their county fair. Contestants will be asked to provide a tri-fold board that will give the judges a clear view of where they come from and what is so awesome about their county. Contestants will also go through an interview process where they will be asked questions regarding different areas of their life, such as community involvement, interests and what their definition of a homemaker is and how they would represent the state of Michigan with a state homemaker title. The Saginaw County Fair is very excited to be a part of a historical award that has been bestowed on so many wonderful participants in the state, originally at the Michigan State Fair and currently organized by different fairs all over the state of Michigan.
