Thanks for visiting our events page!

If you've never taken the plunge to get involved in political action, we encourage you to get to know us by attending a meeting. We are a growing local party, but we need more people like you to step up and share your perspective. We are building teams of people to tackle projects like data entry and analytics, voter registration, special events, social media and content management, and candidate support and canvassing.

County Fair Teardown

Check to see if the lot in front of Building D is open for vendors at 7:30 pm on Sunday. If it is, you can park there instead of the remote visitor lot. Our pop-up booth can be disassembled quickly and loads into a wheeled bag for transport. We'll need to return that and the video display equipment to our party office in Woodstock, just a few blocks from the Fair. Total time to tear down and transport is about an hour.
