Join us for our 109th Fair from July 29th to August 2nd, 2020.
There is something for everyone!
From 4-H Achievement Days, Demolition Derby, Ranch Rodeo, Mud Hog Wrestling, Dances and more!!
In 1911, our forefathers had an idea to gather people of the county together for a good time, the Fall River County Fair was born.
The Fall River County Fair Board is made up entirely of volunteers and works independently from any governmental agency and receives no public funding of any kind. All revenues generated from ticket sales, sponsorships and donations, go directly back into the fair itself.
Your support of the fair ensures the sustainable future of the event.
