Join us!

Enjoy the excitement and nostalgia of the Washington County Fair! There will be lots of events, entertainment, exhibits AND Garden Thyme at the OSU Extension Master Gardener Demonstration Garden! All events held at the Demonstration Garden are FREE.

See you at the Fair!

Please join OSU Extension Master Gardeners at the Demonstration Garden this year when you are at the Washington County Fair. Whether you have gardening or plant questions or want to tour our colorful garden or your children want to have some gardening fun (while you rest in the shade…), there is something for everyone.

Kids Zone!

Always a fair favorite, the Kids Zone offers children fun gardening activities to make their Fair visit memorable!

  • Scavenger hunt in the garden! Children explore the garden and find all of the items on the map.
  • Carrot Pull!
  • Learn fun facts about Ladybugs and create a Ladybug Card!
  • Compost activity — Examine a compost worm bin and then take the Worm Quiz!
  • Flip through the Composting for Kids cards, and learn how to Do the Rot Thing!
  • Bugs….How do you tell the difference between bad bugs and good bugs?

Demonstration Garden and Clinic

In addition to the programs and activities above, we will have a Gardening Clinic for answering your gardening questions. Stroll through our demonstration gardens and harvest some ideas for your own garden showcase — garden docents will answer questions in each garden area.

Come join us at the Washington County Fair, the last weekend in July 2017!
