About Greene-Dreher Sterling Fair

The GDS Fair began in 1917. A school teacher, Ella Nevin, saw the fair as an opportunity to display her students’ handiwork. The goal of the GDS fair was to promote the agricultural lifestyle and to educate the community about the farm life and skills that can be utilized in everyday living. Since 1917 the GDS Fair has expanded greatly by adding live entertainment, thousands of exhibitions, amusement rides, games, and fun activities for the whole family.
