Jr. Fair Auction

Live Stream Options

For bidders and buyers who want to watch (or listen by phone) to the auction remotely, please do so using the Zoom meeting below. This will give you a nearly instantaneous audio and video of the auction. If you are not a bidder/buyer and would simply like to watch the auction, please do so via the YouTube link below this section. We ask for everyone's cooperation on this, as there are only so many participants allowed on the Zoom meeting, and we do not want any buyers to not be able to utilize this VIP service due to non-bidding spectators on the Zoom call. The Zoom meeting will start at 3:30 PM on Friday, July 24, with the YouTube live stream shortly after that.
