Big Lake Community Fair

Join us on Sunday, March 3rd, 2019 from 11-2 pm at the Big Lake High School.

The Community Fair has been renamed from Vendor Fair to reflect the many activities that are available at this event such as the business and non-profit booths, youth performances, bounce house, petting zoo, free food samples, and more!

Please consider hosting a booth to promote your products and services, upcoming events, and potential job opportunities. This is a great opportunity for the community to get to know your organization. Last year, one of the business participants received 5 employment applications at the Fair and 3 more the following week!

Sponsorships are available at $1000 for platinum, $700 for petting zoo sponsorship, and $500 for gold sponsors.  All sponsors receive a free booth along with additional publicity & recognition in the West Sherburne Tribune, on the Chamber website, and at the Community Fair.

Registrations and payments received by Tuesday, February 5th receive a $20 Early Bird Discount!

Booth registrations are available here.
