Groan of the Day

A sweet little boy surprised his grandmother one morning and brought her a cup of coffee. He made it himself and was so proud. He anxiously waited to hear the verdict on the quality of the coffee.

The grandmother had never in her life had such a bad cup of coffee, and as she forced down the last sip she noticed three of those little green army guys in the bottom of the cup.

She asked, "Honey, why would three little green army guys be in the bottom of my cup?"

Her grandson replied, "You know grandma, it's like on TV, 'The best part of waking up is soldiers in your cup.'"

Chris Cagle - 2014 Buchanan County Fair - July 19

Chris' self-proclaimed version of "redneck rock 'n roll," has been firing people up for over a decade, and this time around, Chris is chomping at the bit for an energetic reintroduction to the country music community that's been a long time coming. Fans will still see flashes of the Chris they know but they'll also see the joy and confidence that home life provides him. "I'm happy. You're gonna hear the smile through the radio,"

Chris says of his new record. "For the first time since April 2001, I am truly happy to do it; I have a new lease on all of it." Chris is back with all the energy of a newcomer and the wisdom of a veteran and the renewed passion is contagious. "I'm at a place in my life where I think about everyone I'm working with, especially the fans. I thank God that I'm in a place in my heart where I am grateful and aware. I am very, very, very lucky."

Delaware County Fair’s Newest Event Boasts Award Winning Act!

The Delaware County Fair announces the addition of a new event. Traditionally a festival stage has been erected for a Christian concert on the North end of the grounds for a Wednesday evening performance. This year the fair will construct the stage a day early and host award winning a capella band, Home Free, as a duel event on Tuesday evening of the week long fair. This talented group of vocalists has most recently won the top spot on NBC’s television show The Sing-off.

Five guys from Minnesota with five microphones and no instruments, Home Free has sung all over the world. They have also brought their love of a cappella music into public schools, raising music awareness and thousands of dollars for local high school music programs. With a musical style they call “an eclectic mix of everything” they have taken a cappella in a direction that caters to every generation.  You can find more information about this act and other events at the Fair here.

Area Attractions, Festivals & Fairs

Grant Wood Festival

Grant Wood was born on a farm near Anamosa on February 13, 1891. He displayed early evidence of his artistic ability and upon graduation from Grant High School in Cedar Rapids, enrolled at the Handicraft Guild in Minneapolis. His subsequently taught school, attended night classes at the Art Institute of Chicago, served in the Army, and later was appointed an art instructor at the University of Iowa.

During the 1920s, he traveled to Europe several times. On his last journey, his contact with Flemish and German primitive art forms resulted in his decision to return to the Midwest, settle in Iowa, and paint scenes he knew best in the style for which he would become famous.

Grant Wood died on February 12, 1942 and is buried at Riverside Cemetery in Anamosa.

The annual Grant Wood Art Festival honors the heritage of Grant Wood and the legacy of the early Irish immigrants who settled in Stone City. Attracted to the natural beauty of the terrain, Grant Wood chose this area for his art colony during the summers of 1932-33.  The aim of the original art colony, as outlined in the school’s brochure, was “…to join in working together toward the development of an indigenous expression.  To this end we do not strive for any particular formula or technique.  We rather seek for a stimulating exchange of ideas, a cooperation of a variety of points of view.”

A journey back in time to view architectural landmarks of the mid 19th century is promised to those who visit the area.  The legend is that early immigrants came to Stone City in the 1800s and carved a legacy of stone in the bluffs of the Wapsipinicon River Valley.

National Farm Toy Museum

Hidden amongst the patch worked fields of green and gold, the National Farm Toy Museum, has been home to thousands of farm toys and collectibles since 1986. The idea of a farm toy museum came from the growing awareness of the farm toy hobby through passionate and enthusiastic collectors, and the demand for additional space to house the National Farm Toy Show. Taking note of these two elements Dave Bell, then of the ERTL Company, and Claire Scheibe, founder and past president of the Toy Farmer Ltd. met with the Dyersville Industries, Inc. (DII) Board of Directors to propose the National Farm Toy Museum.

As was expected, the DII Board did not immediately accept the idea of building a museum. One major concern the Directors focused on was the expense to construct the facility. To help defray the costs a fund raising campaign was put together that included introducing and selling a series of collector tractors. The first series was a line of vintage Cockshutt tractors. The series consisted of a three-tractor set that was produced from 1986 thru 1990. Those who purchased the first set are still acknowledged in the museum today. The result of the fund raising campaign and the sales of the Cockshutt series tractor sales was the National Farm Toy Museum. Every year the National Farm Toy Museum selects an exclusive collector's series tractor to produce for the benefit of the Museum.
