Friday night, Chili Feed!
The show barns will be available for coop-in beginning at 3pm. After your birds are cooped in, take a load off and enjoy some warm chili and corn bread with your fellow exhibitors. No need to leave the fairgrounds and go looking for food, we'll have the kettle on. The PNPA is not charging for the Friday night feast, but donations will be gladly accepted.
6-9am Saturday morning, PNPA volunteers will serve pancakes, eggs, ham and beverages in the Exhibit Hall. Breakfast tickets are sold at a discount at $4 each if purchased with your entry. A limited number of tickets will also be available at the Show Secretary's table for $5 each. Funds raised from this effort will go toward purchasing a used trailer, needed to house PNPA show materials currently stored on wood pallets under tarps outside.
