Country fair offers
old-fashioned good time
The Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration holds its 18th annual Country Fair and Art Show on Saturday, August 10, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The art show and silent auction begin with a reception on Friday evening, August 9, from 5 to 8 p.m.
The country fair is old-fashioned fun for the entire family. For the children there are animals, face painting, a bouncy castle, and many games and craft activities. There will also be a return visit from the Sisters-Camp Sherman fire department.
The art show and sale includes many outstanding regional artists. This year there is a diverse collection of original high-quality oils, watercolors, pastels, porcelain, sculptures, outdoor art, photography, jewelry and other fine crafts. The art show is juried by prominent Northwest artists Vicky Shuck and Gary Vincent. They will both have pieces of their own art included in the show as well.
The upscale silent auctions guarantee something for every taste. This year look for certificates from local restaurants, a stay at an Oregon Coast beach house, golf packages, jewelry items, and art pieces donated by art-show artists.
Fairgoers can relax under the pines with a delicious lunch at the Café Transfig, then top it off with the very popular home-made Marionberry cobbler á la mode.
The Country Store offers homemade preserves and relishes, fresh produce, candy, home-baked breads and cookies, potted plants and handmade craft items. The Good Book venue offers a selection of gently read books.
The Country Fair and Art Show is the church's major outreach fundraiser each year, and all funds earned are given back to the community. Over the years this event has generated over $150,000 in funds for community support agencies.
The Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration is on Brooks Camp Road at the corner of Hwy. 242, just west of Sisters. Admission and parking are free. For more information call 541-549-7087.
