Greenfield Spring Fling is Saturday


The fourth annual Spring Fling 2024/Greenfield Field Day will take place in and around the village Saturday, March 16, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“The event has grown each year, making it bigger and better than the past. It will include five buildings with vendors, crafters and baked goods inside. There will be door prizes at many of the buildings,” event organizer Lynn Riggs said.

A card stamp door prize drawing is being promoted by Solid Rock Church. Six stamps from various stops are required to enter to win a prize. The church is located at 871 S.R. 28. The church will have crafters and a bake sale inside and out. There will be pictures with a bunny from 10-11 a.m. and 1-2 p.m. The kitchen will offer pulled pork, mac-n-cheese, baked beans, hot dogs, chips and drinks. Everyone entering the building will receive an egg for a chance to win a prize along with other raffles.

Tiny Town Pre-school and Daycare at 156 Jefferson St. in the old armory building will host an egg hunt with the Easter Bunny on site from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Just up the street is Posey Plaza with shops and vendors set up in the hallway. Steph’s Gourmet Food truck will be set up outside the plaza. A few doors up is Robbin’s Village Florist with a window display for spring. Across the street is The Letter Shop with many new products inside.

Heading west on Jefferson there is the Grind House Cafe. Nu 4 U is next door. It is a new and used shopping mall next to Steven’s Hardware.

“I just have to say, I have been in the crafting world for 40-plus years and crafting has made a huge comeback,” said Riggs. “We have so many one-of-a-kind crafts and unique pieces you will not find anywhere else because these people are letting their imaginations run wild, and I made sure to spread them throughout our village. Every building will have so many people from Dayton, Jackson, Fayette, Highland, Ross and Clinton counties and more.”

There will be a golden egg hunt plus other door prizes at various locations. A coloring contest for all ages is listed on the event’s Facebook page. You can copy and print the page. There will be two prizes for each age group. Papers need to be turned in at Hampton’s Detailing by Thursday, March 14 before 4 p.m. Other arrangements can be made with Riggs at 937-763-3445 or on Facebook for dropoffs.

There is a new event happening the same time at the Madison Township Building on Centerfield Road just west of town off S.R. 28. It is called Greenfield Field Day.

The day will conclude with the Greenfield Elementary Carnival from 4-8 p.m. There will be raffles, silent auctions and $10 wristbands for kids to play multiple endless games.

“I want to thank all the people working on this Spring Fling with me…, Riggs said. “The support these folks have given me over the years has been so wonderful. It takes a village to build an event as large as this will be.”
