Special Drive- Brown County FairBay Port FFA is running a 'Special Drive' at this year's 2023 Brown County Fair.
The ‘Special Drive’ is a pig show which gives students with special needs the opportunity to show a pig after an afternoon of mentorship from current fair exhibitors. This event will take place on FRIDAY, AUGUST 18TH from 3:00pm- approximately 5:15 PM in the North Show Barn and Swine Barn at the Brown County Fairgrounds in DePere, WI. This event is open to ages 8-18 and limited to the first 15 students to sign up.
Brown County Fair exhibitors are paired with students to learn about raising and showing swine from 3:00 PM - 4:30PM. Upon conclusion of this tutorial, we will run an official show at 4:30pm in the North Show Barn. This event is free for students to participate, thanks to our sponsors (see flyer).
