There are just some things you have to do for it to really feel like summer – like eating an ice cream cone, going to the beach or visiting the county fair. The Stearns County Fair is here to fulfill at least one of your summer requirements.
The Stearns County Fair opens at the beginning of July. Every year, 25,000 to 30,000 people flock to our grounds to enjoy all of the fun and festivities. The 2018 season will be the 117th year that our fair has been running, and we continue to hold it at the same place it started.
You can enjoy a different experience every day you visit the fair. Some of the events you can look forward to include:
We pride ourselves on how many animals we have at the fair, including birds, rabbits, horses, cows and goats. We also have a good number of draft horses you can see. Stearns County’s strong 4-H program has a huge presence at our fair.
On Wednesday, you’ll see many of the entries for our livestock and rabbit shows. And speaking of our schedule, Wednesday is also the day our carnival opens at 3 p.m. Child care providers will get discounts on rides and free food on Friday! Thursday is senior citizen’s day and also the day we hold a special awards ceremony for our outstanding senior volunteers throughout the county. Friday and Saturday are Children's days.
Visit us this summer for fun the whole family can enjoy!
