Summer Begins with Country Fair Fun

The Annual Country Fair at Saint Herman’s Orthodox Church is quickly becoming one of the area’s

anticipated summer events. This is the Fair’s fifth year of offering a day full of great food, games,

shopping, and lots of family fun! The Fair will take place on May 30 from 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. at Saint

Herman’s Antiochian Orthodox Church, 6988 N En Dove Road, Wasilla.


This event provides a great way for the kids to celebrate the beginning of summer vacation. The carnival

games, including the ever popular Chicken Fling, and bouncy house provide tons of fun. There are lots

of prizes to be won! Children will also enjoy meeting our farm animal friends in the Petting Zoo. Our

face painting booth has some of the best face painting you will see this summer. Participate in the pie

eating contest or buy a duct tape sword for a safe, mock battle! While the kids play, mom and dad can

check out the Trading Post for some great deals on locally handcrafted items. Then, the whole family

can try to win a delicious cake from North Star Bakery in the Ultimate Cake Walk.


Visit with neighbors and meet new friends over the fantastic food – gyros, pulled pork, locally made

sausage, hot dogs, slices of pie and more! Don’t miss Fizzywig’s sodas, the all-natural soda stand serving

sodas the old fashioned way, with your choice of cream, whipped cream, or ice cream. There will be lots

of tasty treats including old fashioned candy, snowballs, and fairy floss (a.k.a. cotton candy).

One of the highlights of the Annual Country Fair is always the Cupcake Contest. If you have ever wanted

to try your hand at a great baking competition, this is it! There are categories for both adults and



Watch for details on our Facebook page – Start your summer

with a beautiful, fun filled day for the entire family!
