The grant will help to ensure that organizers are able to offer fair visitors and participants.a first-class educational experience. On the day of the fair, families are invited to the Strong Hall for what will amount to a full “day of history.” Besides the wonderful projects developed by area students, visitors will be treated to a variety of presentations and workshops featuring local scholars, historical societies, and civic organizations, including the National Endowment of the Arts’ Picturing America program, demonstrations by experts in historical clothing, presentations by the Titanic Museum Branson, and musical performances by Roy “Dusty” Rogers, Jr., The Back Porch Players, and The HonkyTonk Renovators. It will be a day both fun and informative. And, of course, admission is free to all.
Organizers would like to thank the MHC for their generous support. We hope the friends of the fair might take few moments to express gratitude to this fine organization, as it continues in their work to nurture the study of the humanities in our region.
