It’s Too Hot to Wallow at Home!

Why spend late July through early August stuck in the house when you could be getting down and dirty at the Demo Derby! While we have plenty of seating, you’ll want to get here early, and join other enthusiasts as they cheer on their favorite drivers to the sounds of revving engines, flying mud, and crashing metal! Stearns County Fair is proud to be celebrating 55 years of derby action.

Demolition Derby 2022

July 28th, 29th, & 30th 2022

Never Experienced Derby Mayhem Before?

You’re in for a treat! The goal of a demo derby is to be behind the wheel of the only drivable vehicle in the theatre. As drivers navigate the track, each develops a strategy for success. Some take the offensive and demolish as many other cars as they can, as quickly as they can. Many take a defensive position to absorb each hit. Some go into flight mode. Still others take a passive approach, keeping a low profile throughout the worst of the battle. Sometimes they win; sometimes they lose─ but every derby is a thrill!

What to Bring:

A great attitude, earplugs, and a blanket to shield yourself from flying mud thrown by passing derby cars. The closer you are to the action, the dirtier you can expect to go home!
