Darke County showcases another Christmas Food Truck Rally & Craft Show

This event promises to be a fantastic celebration of local small businesses, which are the backbone of our economy in the United States, Ohio, and Darke County. It's an excellent opportunity to show your support for these enterprises, especially during these challenging times. Small businesses truly need our support now more than ever!

Whether the sun is shining or raindrops fall, this event will go on as planned. The best part? There's free admission to the craft show! However, please note that there is a $5 parking fee, and the proceeds from parking will go to Solid Rock Apostolic Church in Bradford. Solid Rock Church will also be collecting non-perishable food items for a Thanksgiving food drive to benefit families in Darke County. If you want to enter a drawing for a chance to win over $1000 in gift cards and prizes, head to the registration table located across from the gazebo area.

Upon parking your car at the fairgrounds, you will receive an entry ticket for the drawing. Plus, you can earn additional entries by donating non-perishable food items for the food drive. It's a win-win!

The event organizers extend their heartfelt appreciation to all the local business sponsors who have played a crucial role in promoting this community event. Winners will be announced hourly, and you can collect your prizes at the gazebo.
