Five fun-filled affordable days for the entire family. The Mighty Howard County Fair features a free gate and free parking and a pay-one-price grandstand button that allows admittance to all five grandstand events.
Entertainment that include stock car races, tractor pull, nationally-known country music entertainers, rodeo and classic rock and roll. Also, 23 fairgoer contests are held throughout the Fair, ranging from kolache making to best apple pie baker to decorate rock and veggie/fruit critters, to name a few.
Fair food is another highlight, including 2 local church stands and several concessions that feature a variety of smoked/grilled meats to the typical fried delights such as elephant ears, funnel cakes, corn dogs, several deep fried offerings and such favorites as deep dish pizza, chocolate covered bacon and hot beef sundaes.
The Fair showcases the local 4H and FFA youth and many vendors that promote their business, plus includes a large 'Ag Center' that is filled with farm implement and RV dealers.
