Click here to view our Kiwanis Ogeechee Fair website.

All money raised from the fair is given back to the community and the communities of our seven participating counties, Bulloch, Bryan, Candler, Evans, Tattnall, Jenkins & Screven counties.  Because of public support we are able to give back over $200,000 each year to deserving charitable projects such as:  Ogeechee Area Hospice, Boys & Girls Club, Ronald McDonald House, Girls & Boys Scouts, 4-H, FFA, Special Olympics, Law Enforcement Groups and EMS, Red Cross, along with several scholarship programs and much, much more. The first contribution for the year is collected on opening night.  We have deemed that "FOOD BANK NIGHT".  The gates of the Fair will open Monday at 6:00 p.m. with admission of $5.00; receive a coupon for a $2.00 discount by bringing a canned good for the Statesboro Food Bank.  The admission for Tuesday through Saturday is $5 per person, with children under 6 free.   Last year was a huge success.  Prize money and premiums on exhibits during the week will total over $20,000.  To achieve this goal, many volunteer man hours are spent each year from the close of one fair to the opening of the next.  

We wish to bring our citizens a safe, family atmosphere where we can all become "kids" again reminiscing of times gone by and dreaming of things to be are all part of the fair experience.
      
Kiwanis members, easily recognizable by their bright yellow jackets or shirts, are always ready to assist patrons while on the fair grounds.  They will be scattered all over beginning with parking, selling admission tickets, cooking pancakes and maintaining a secure grounds. Statesboro Kiwanians believe in making a difference in our community and supporting the youth of Statesboro and the surrounding communities.
 
Thank you for your continuing patronage and support.  Remember that the reason we can all enjoy this type activity is due to the men and women of our Armed Forces who are fighting daily for this and all our freedoms.
