Madera Fair Battles Bad Air-Days But Still Draws Record Crowds

MADERA - Even record heat and smoky air could not keep the crowds away from the 2015 Madera District Fair. On Thursday over 4000 people passed through the gates even with temperatures reaching 105 degrees. Many of those guests enjoyed the Marshall Tucker Band on the main stage. Others took in all the free entertainment at the patio stage, the old grandstand stage or were wowed but the new LED lighting decorating all the carnival rides on the Midway of Fun.

The one disappoint was that for the first time ever, the Madera Unified Kids Day at the Fair was cancelled. The annual field trip for all the third graders from the district has in the past, given a chance for kids to learn about agriculture and other educational aspects of the fair. Unfortunately, this year the sky turned a smoky brown and ash from local fires fell all over the valley making it unsafe for the kids to be outside.  Hopefully our weather will cooperate more fully next year and Kids Day can be returned.


Madera Fair Ends Four Day Run

The animals from Saturday's livestock sale were moved out for processing and the FFA and 4H kids finally got to go home after a week of working with their animals.

Livestock Sale & Foreigner Pack Them In at Madera District Fair

MADERA -  Where can you buy a goat for $50 a pound? The Madera Fair Junior Livestock Auction brought out the agriculture community to support the kids of the FFA and 4H and the community did not disappoint.

The school kids sold their animal projects and some collected belt buckles for grand champions and showmanship. Last year the fair set a record for the amount of money raised to support these projects. This years numbers are not available yet. If you missed the auction you can still come out and place bump bids to help out.
