The Country Fair & Gathering is a gathering of local farmers, gardeners, folks, and kids dedicated to rural life — what it gives to us and what it needs from us. Thinking about the future, the Country Fair aims to become a place where we come to share knowledge across the conventional/sustainable divide. The Sedalia Country Fair & Gathering is a place for conversation about culture and agriculture, and about those spaces where art and the natural sciences meet.
It’s a day for children to get outdoors, run around, play in the playground, see lots of great big horses, chickens large and small, watch Border Collies herd sheep, ride in a wagon.
It offers contests for food, flower arrangement, and photography. And it’s the Counter Ridge and Bedford Primary School Reunion!
2020 Event Canceled
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have decided to cancel this year’s Country Fair & Gathering. The safety of our artists and patrons comes first, and although we are saddened, we hope everyone will stay safe, stay aware, and sadly, stay away.
Counter Ridge / Sedalia Primary School Reunion
The Sedalia center has collected some historical background on Counter Ridge. We invite anyone with artifacts, memorabilia, information, and memories to bring them to the center so they can help reconstruct and reinvigorate the school’s history.
All proceeds benefit Astride with Pride therapeutic riding program (a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization for children and adults with disabilities)
