We are so excited to bring this to the Jasper County Fall Festival! Make time to watch Jamie Stang, from Stang Arts-Effingham IL, perform live on the main stage at 2:30 pm. Her finished piece will be on display the remainder of the afternoon and will go up for auction prior to the Fuedin Hillbillies performance! Stang Arts conducts after school art programs in Jasper County, bring the kiddos up to watch their teacher/mentor “in action”! Thank you to our Chamber Sponsors for making this possible!
Due to regulations beyond our control the Chamber has to cancel the Pig Scramble at our Fall Festival. Many of our local farmers are prohibited to help due to bio-security, and the pigs used for the scramble would not be able to be returned to the farm for fear of contamination. WE HAVE A NEW GAME TO REPLACE THE SCRAMBLE…THE DIZZY DOUGHNUT!
This fun game is open to ages 4-11, located on the north side of the courthouse lawn at 3:00 PM.
Kids will race to eat a suspended doughnut with their hands behind their back! The first child to finish their doughnut successfully will win a prize! Limited to 48 participants. Sponsored by Martin’s IGA & Newton Dairy Queen.
On the Jasper County Fall Festival Stage on Saturday from 4 pm to 6:30 pm is Dakota Danielle. Bring a lawn chair and spend the afternoon listening to her great music.
