Shop Small Business Saturday

Shop Small on Saturday November 24th

Shop Small is on the Saturday after Thanksgiving and is dedicated to getting people to get out and shop at their local small businesses. When we shop locally help our community, our local merchants and ourselves. Our small businesses are asked many times to help sponsor local events, give merchandise as gifts for auctions and drawings and cash donations for benefits. If we support our local merchants they will be able to continue to do business in our community and help when asked with donations.

So remember Shop Small on Saturday November 24th in Grabill. Check out the ad in this week’s Courier for details on local businesses and use the coupons below for additional savings.

Grabill Country Fair

2018 Grabill Country Fair

Thursday-Saturday, Sept. 6-8, 2018

Grabill Country Fair Barber Shop QuartetThis popular annual festival, which attracts 100,000 visitors, began in 1973 by the Grabill Chamber of Commerce. Grabill is a quaint town of about 1,000 people, just north of Fort Wayne, Indiana nestled in the heart of a large Amish community. The town’s country-style fair highlights the area’s Amish heritage.

Held on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday after Labor Day, the fair encompasses streets lined with tents and canopies, which shelter 130 craft booths. Among crafts are those that showcase the natural beauty of wood, which include shelves, frames, and board games; other works highlight needlepoint, knitting and crocheting projects. Dolls, ceramic villages, blown glass objects, lampshades, and whirlybirds are also among craft items offered.

Grabill Country Fair Sack RaceAlso crafts of a bygone era are demonstrated, such as the use of the spinning wheel, or making corn husk dolls, or horseshoeing. Activities and contests run nonstop. Children can participate in a spelling bee, or old-fashion contests, which include frog jumping, a baby crawl, jump rope, apple peeling, watermelon eating, and cherry pit spitting.

The main stage features gospel, country, or bluegrass music each evening, along with various acts performing on the Mime Time stage  or strolling through the fair.

A wide variety of food vendors provide scrumptious delights ranging from old country fare such as corn on the cob, apple dumplings, and beans & cornbread, to modern delights like deep-fried cheese curds, cotton candy, and chocolate covered cheesecake.
