Country Fair 2011 at Conner Prairie

Grab your family and friends and experience an authentic 19th-century agricultural fair firsthand when you head for Conner Prairie’s Country Fair. This year, the fair expands and invites modern Hoosiers to join the fun by showing off their best or weirdest spirit of invention with Indy Mini-Maker Faire. Makers will be on hand to show what they love to do, and tell how (and why) they did it. Don’t be surprised if you see robots or lightning machines alongside steam engines and spinning wheels! Participate with your own invention in an egg drop to see if your egg can survive an unimaginable launch.

Saturday, September 17, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday, September 18, 11 a.m.-5 p.m.

Admission is $14/adults, $13/seniors 65+, $9/youth (ages 2-12), free for members and youth under 2.

Call 317.776.6006 or visit connerprairie.org for more information.
