Mildred Knighton Cafe

Date: July 24 - July 27, 2024
Email to a friend
Our menu is varied with Krautburgers; cheese krautburgers; hamburgers; cheeseburgers; hot dogs; baked potatoes; nachos; fritos pie; chips; baked beans; frozen candy bars; and our specialty Dillstickle (dill pickle on a stick). Stop by to see us and enjoy some food and drink in the cool comfort of air conditioning. This building is a great place for families to spend time and take a bathroom break.

When the Overflow Café began Cindy Hill was the chair and Mildred Knighton helped. We found that it takes about 65 people to staff the café for 4 days of the fair. Cindy left us to attend to family matters and Larry Leachman, Nancy Layton and Mildred Knighton gathered the food together for the event. In staffing the kitchen we called on volunteers and usually have no problem getting help. Many volunteers work more than one shift.

Eric and Brooke Mosier are currently the chairs. If anyone would like to volunteer, please give any one of us a call and we’ll be happy to have you. It’s work but we have a lot of fun doing it.

Platte Purchase Sponsorship
The FAIR BOARD would like to THANK YOU for your help with the cost of construction and additions to the Platte Purchase. Please take the time to read some of the bricks on front porch of the Platte Purchase. The people who's names are engraved on bricks became a part of Platte County Fair History by becoming a sponsor of the Platte Purchase.
