A Day of Learning

Event Overview

Register Now for A Day of Learning!

PLEASE NOTE: In an effort to accommodate schedules and budgets, we have modified our pricing as follows:
$100/per person includes 3 classes, one Bonus Class, and A Day of Learning Certificate. You may also choose to attend only 1 ($40) or 2 ($75) classes. Multiple class discounts are per person, not per group. The Keynote class is free for anyone who signs up for at least one class.


On May 2, 2021 the Fairgrounds facilities will be transformed into “classrooms” for the day, offering 15 unique lectures on a variety of topics presented by experienced and captivating instructors (some you may even know!) This is an ALL-VOLUNTEER effort to support the Fairgrounds and other community organizations. Please join us!


The day will be divided into 3 time periods. Five individual classes will be taught during each time period. Attendees ("students') will select one of the 5 classes offered each period, for a total of 3 classes. In addition, students can attend the Bonus Class / Keynote Speaker presentation after the conclusion of the three class periods.


Following the Bonus Class, students will receive their A Day of Learning Certificate at the Graduation Ceremony. The Certificate serves as an acknowledgement of the completion of the classes as well as a receipt for their tax deductible contribution.*


There will be breaks in between classes and a lunch period when snacks and pre-ordered lunches can be enjoyed. (See below).
