The schedule for the 2017 Common Ground Country Fair is posted on our website MOFGA.org. Make your plans now to enjoy some of more than 750 workshops, demonstrations, talks and other events at the September 22-24 Fair at MOFGA's Common Ground Education Center in Unity. Remember that MOFGA members get in free all three days of the Fair. Those who volunteer for a 4-hour shift also get in free and get a Fair T-shirt and a meal in our Common Kitchen.

The poster is available online through our MOFGA Store.
