Steuben County’s much-loved Dairy Festival is all set to make its comeback in Bath, at the Steuben County Fairgrounds on Saturday, June 3.
The day will kick off at 9 a.m. with a flea market, craft fair, and food vendors. The highlight of the day will be a parade, commencing at 10:30 a.m., following the theme “Dairyland Country,” where attendees are encouraged to construct their own floats.
Concurrently, there will be a photography contest with the same theme. Entrants must submit an 8″x10″ photo taken within Steuben County by May 26. The winning entries will be displayed at the festival and at the Steuben County Fair in August.
The festival, hosted annually (except in 2020) by the Steuben County Pomona Grange since 1957, aims to honor the dairy industry and America’s farming heritage.
This year’s event also includes an array of agricultural and tractor exhibits, a car show with a $15 entry fee, and a slow cooker mac and cheese cookoff from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. A K-9 demonstration will occur during the cookoff, and live music will entertain the crowds from noon till 3 p.m.
Further details and a full list of the day’s events can be found on the Steuben County Dairy Festival’s Facebook event page.
