The fair grounds are open to all with FREE admission. Showcase your talents or appreciate the efforts of others in the fair building where you can check out ribbon-winning skills mastered by our local residents from gardening, baking, sewing, painting, and more. Exhibits can be viewed in the fair building from 12:30PM until 8PM Friday, Saturday during the day, and Sunday through the parade. Local businesses and organziations also offer an opportunity to learn more about them and often have some giveaways and prize drawings.
If truck or tractor pulls are more your speed, come on down to the the TRUCK PULL on Friday night. The FFA TRACTOR PULL takes place on Saturday starting at 11am. Or get those legs a’movin with the PEDAL TRACTOR PULL on Sunday. For details on the pulls including registration times and fees, admission rates, and more, visit our events page.
No fair is complete without a midway. The midway will also be opening Friday evening at 5PM with Stipe’s Shows amusement rides and traditional fair concessions. Be sure to get in on the Friday night wristband special where a $20 wristband means all the rides you can handle from 6PM until 10PM.

The midway rides are open on Sunday, too, if you need to get in one more spin on the Tilt-a-Whirl!
