Last year, Capri Cafaro, host of HRN’s Eat Your Heartland Out, recorded a show about the summer State and County Fairs. I thought it would be a terrific way to get to know her podcast, and what could be more perfect in August than to replay this episode?
There is nothing quite as American as the county or state fair. Capri welcomes Marla Calico, President & CEO of the International Association of Fairs and Expositions, who discusses the history behind the agricultural fair and how fairs have both changed and stayed the same over the years. Then you'll meet Carol Kratz & Drake Hokanson, authors who travelled the country to capture the cultural essence of county fairs for their book, Purebred and Homegrown: America's County Fairs. So whether it’s an animal judging, a pie-eating contest, or a fried Oreo that attracts you to a fair, you can hear about it here.
