Entertainment Director


Demolition derby is one of the most exciting and thrilling forms of motorsport out there! It’s a spectacle that never fails to entertain, with drivers taking their cars and crashing them into each other with the aim of being the last man standing. It’s an adrenaline rush for both the drivers and spectators, with drivers having to come up with creative tactics to avoid being taken out of the race.

Spectators can cheer on their favorite driver from a safe distance, but don’t let that fool you because this event is sure to be a crowd-pleaser and the energy in the air is like no other!  Last year our grandstands were packed to standing room only and we anticipate the same again this year!

Fun for the Kids!

Be sure to check out the B side Arena which will be filled with activities that relate to different types of farming! All activities will include educational components.

We will be once again hosting a petting zoo that will include an area for kids to enjoy petting small animals. We will also have a play-with-chicks area that will be supervised for people to sit and hold new chicks.

On Saturday we welcome Prairie Exotics, which is an animal sanctuary thatprovides educational outreach to the public.  Visitors can learn about unique animals and their care.

For some added fun, we will also be hosting the Cluck and Quack Fun Poultry Show with judged and fun classes.

The Exhibit Hall

Our Exhibit Hall is for everyone! We have a huge selection of arts, crafts, and handiworks; plus baking, canning, and gardening items. Students also have a special spot to show off their projects and art from the past school year.

Kids can enter their Lego and finger-painting creations, and teenagers can show off their photography, sewing, or woodworking skills.  Did Uncle Joe teach you how to weld? Did Aunt Mary share her gardening tips with you? We’d love to see what you can do! Grandparents and Adults who are 60+ have a senior section all to themselves, which includes classes such as crafts, woodworking and quilting. For you parents, it’s time to have a mini bake-off and find out who bakes the best cookies! Whatever it is you like to make, we love to see your creations and are sure you will find a class to enter it!

Entry is simple and can be done entirely online!  Click below links to the prize list, online registration, and a printable entry form. Please note that online entry is preferred.

The Barn Quilt Project

The DAS Exhibit Hall committee is working on creating a barn quilt trail in the Carman Area. We have created the first two quilts on the fairgrounds, displayed on our Exhibit Building, and hope that this inspires you to create your own!

There are three ways to join the project:

  • Donate a barn quilt for us to hang
  • Make a barn quilt for your own enjoyment and register it to be added to the map
  • support us with a donation towards supplies to make more barn quilts
