The Kiwanis Club of Statesboro welcomes you to the 55th annual Kiwanis Ogeechee Fair. We
hope that your family and friends will join us in continuing the tradition of education, heritage,
business exhibits, great food, entertainment and rides. This year’s fair begins on Monday,
October 17th, at 5 pm with the parade in downtown Statesboro and will conclude on Saturday,
October 22nd.
The Fair Committee and Kiwanis club have worked diligently this past year to prepare the fair
grounds and build a fair with great entertainment and fun for all ages. ‘Friend us’ on Facebook
(Kiwanis Ogeechee Fair) for up-to- date information and schedules. We have booked some great
live music entertainment that will be enjoyed by everyone attending the fair. Sam’s Petting Zoo
and Rosaire’s Pigs will return to the Heritage Village for some great family experiences. Be
sure to catch a show of amazing stage illusions and skillful escapes by Extreme Illusions &
Escapes. As always, our famous “Pancake House’ will be open along with the BBQ Hut and
many local groups to provide a wide range of food choices.
Thank you for supporting our efforts to help our seven county region with the funds we raise
during the fair.
