Sundholm Log Cabin at Clay County Fair

Fairgoers can find plenty of hands-on fun at the Sundholm Log Cabin and Grandpa’s Barn at the Clay County Fair.

The Sundholm Log Cabin offers fun, educational opportunities to fair visitors, including live animals and hands-on activities.

“When they come into the cabin, it’ll be all hands-on displays,” said Clay County Conservation Board Naturalist Brianne Blom. “They can learn about all different kinds of things dealing with nature. We also have naturalist programs throughout the whole day.”

Naturalist programs are held daily at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Activities include topics involving reptiles, amphibians, bison, mammals, turtles and more.

The goal, Blom said, is to introduce people to nature.

“We want to get people outdoors and it’s a good time,” she said.

Fairgoers have one more shot to see a live bald eagle up close Friday at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.

The cabin’s is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily with naturalist programs at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Grandpa’s Barn

After a brand new barn was built last year, Grandpa’s Barn is back again and is sure to be a popular attraction for families visiting the Clay County Fair.

Visitors can find in the barn baby animals, growing crops, tractor cab simulators by Clay County Farm Bureau and a milking parlor sponsored by MaxYield.

This year, Grandpa’s Barn includes a free range pasture for the animals to roam during the fair.
