Thank you to everyone who attended “Networking at the Park” and made it such a great success!  Watch this page for announcement of our next meeting.


Have you reserved your booth yet for this year’s Karns Community Fair?

Planning is in full swing for the 62nd annual Karns Community Fair.  Under the very able leadership of Cassie Kiestler, the NWKBPA has an excellent team of community volunteers assembled that has been meeting for many months to make sure this year’s fair is another wonderful opportunity for the community to come together and celebrate with food and fun for all ages.

Join us at the Karns Fair, on Saturday, July 25th, from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. at Karns High School.  Come to the chicken auction, see the car show, listen to live music, and enter the rib-eating contest.  Check out all the fun and informative booths, meet your local politicians, see demonstrations of fencing and of mixed martial arts, and enter the competitive exhibits.  There will be inflatables for the kids, facepainting, and much more.

There’s also a 5K Race earlier that morning, a parade that leaves Ingles at 9 a.m. and goes to the High School, and the Fairest of the Fair Pageant on Saturday, July 18th.

Many local businesses, politicians, nonprofits, and home-based craftspeople will have booths at the Fair.  If you have not reserved your booth yet, click on “Fair” on the main menu and download the application form now!  (First come, first served on the best booth locations.)

More volunteers are still needed to help that day.  For more information, contact Cassie Kiestler at
