Forreston FFA Alumni Toy & Craft Show is March 9


FORRESTON — The Forreston FFA Alumni is very excited and proud to host the 36th Annual Farm Toy and Craft Show. The show will be held at Forreston High School on March 9 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be over 50 farm toy and craft exhibitors. A silent auction from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. will also be held, and you do not need to be present to win. We also have one of the area’s best lunch stands featuring Eickman’s meats along with homemade pies, cookies, bars, and brownies.

To add to the fun, there will be a Farm Toy Display Competition with FFA Alumni Toy and Craft Show attendees voting on the People’s Choice Best of Show Award. The winner will be given a certificate to display with their layouts in future shows. There will also be raffles for Eickman’s Meat processing, Culver’s gift cards, and many door prizes for everyone! General admission is $3 and children under five are free.

This year's show tractors are both 1/64 scale models. The first is a Minneapolis Moline G-1000 Vista 2WD with duals. The second show, tractor is an Oliver 2255. Both tractors are priced at $35 each. These tractors will be on sale during this year's show on March 9, or ask an FFA Alumni member to purchase one or both ahead of time.

All contracts for crafters, toy vendors, and farm toy display participants are due on Feb. 1. Vendor contracts and event information documents can be downloaded from the FFA Alumni website. Please check out for information, including a detailed list of our 2024 vendors.
