Country Fair supports Sisters community

For 19 years, The Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration on Brooks Camp Road in Sisters has supported the Sisters community through its annual Country Fair and Art Show.

Last year, funds from the church event provided over $20,000 to local support agencies such as Family Action Network, Interfaith Volunteer Caregivers, NeighborImpact, Sisters Habitat for Humanity, Healthy Beginnings, Bethlehem Inn, Circle of Friends, and Saving Grace.

The distributed funds come from a community Art Show and Country Fair which will be held on August 8 and 9. Beginning Friday night is the juried art show and silent auction from 5 to 8 p.m. with diverse art provided by regional artists and the opportunity to enjoy refreshments and mingle with the artists.

The art show and country fair continue on Saturday, August 9, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. with the art show/sale and more silent auctions. The Country Store offers homemade preserves, fresh produce, candy, pies, cakes, home-baked breads and cookies, potted plants, and handmade craft items. The Good Book store offers a great selection of gently read books. The Sweet Tooth Booth dishes up homemade marionberry cobbler with ice cream that is a local favorite.

Face painting, a bouncy castle, children's games, cake walks, fire-truck tours and animal petting works up a second appetite for their world-famous ribs and hot dogs, coleslaw and chips at the Café Transfig.

All proceeds go back to the Sisters community.

Admission and parking are free. The Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration is located at the corner of Hwy. 242 and Brooks Camp Road. For more information call 541-549-7087.
