The Prairie Village Museum's signature event is turning 25.

The Village Fair, which annually draws large crowds to tour the museum and enjoy the special events, will celebrate its silver anniversary on Sunday, Aug. 8.

Pam Schmitt, curator, said workers have been busy the past few weeks getting the grounds ready for the influx of fairgoers. The day will feature plenty of pioneer demonstrations, musical entertainment, a worship service and food booths.

The day kicks off with a pancake breakfast sponsored by the Geographical Center Historical Society. It will be served from 8 a.m to 12 noon. A Sunday worship service will be held at 9:30 a.m. by St. Paul Lutheran Church.

The featured musical entertainment will be the Lund Family of Bottineau. They will play at 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.

A pie social will start at 1 p.m. in the Great Northern Depot and hosted by the Eagles Auxiliary. A free wine tasting will be conducted in the General Store hosted by Dakota Hills Winery of Knox.

On going events throughout the day will include cooking in the cook car, butter churning, blacksmith demonstrations and old-time laundry demonstrations. Towner rancher Ryan Taylor will also perform rope tricks and many local musicians plan to perform throughout the grounds. Several classic cars will be on display.

Last year's attendance was right around 1,000 and organizers are hopeful an even bigger crowd will be on hand for the 25th year.
