Our 163nd Year!

September 2 - 9, 2017
  • Games and Rides

    The kids love it when you put them on rides and win them stuff.

  • Livestock Competitions

    Cows, sheep, goats, rabbits, and jackalopes. Well, maybe not jackalopes.

  • Deep-Fried Everything

    It's only 8 days long, take a break from that diet.

  • Prizes for Peppers

    And all your other home-grown produce.

  • Historic Buildings

    We've been here for a long time.

We're only days away from the start of another exciting fair!
