In 1912, our founding fathers came together to form the first "official" Fall River County Fair. Events have changed through the years, but the euphoria of the county fair has remained the same. People from throughout the area join together for a good ol' country time.
Through the efforts of many volunteers, we are steadily working to keep our past alive.
Fall River County Fall is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. The fairgrounds are owned and maintained by the Fall River County Fair. We are one of the few county fairs in South Dakota that is solely self-sufficient. Proceeds from events are put back into the workings of the fair.
Money alloted from the county commissioners is paid to the 4-H for their expenses.
