If you can’t make it to a guided barn tour, the barns are open in between draft horse performances for viewing the draft horses. Additionally, an art show, special exhibits, delicious food, vendors selling wares and farming supplies, and a horseshoeing competition are all part of the Harvest Fair, which takes place at the Fairgrounds during all four days of the Classic.
