The Barbour County Fair comes around every summer, and it’s the community’s way of celebrating the end of a successful growing season. The opportunity for fun is unlimited!
There is the midway carnival full of fun rides, games, craft booths, fun-house, and of course your favorite fair snacks: who can pass up a corn dog, funnel cakes and cotton candy? Each year, the community elects a King and Queen via a pageant, and they are duly crowned during the gala celebrations.
Adults and children alike may enter into the competitive exhibits, which include arts & crafts, culinary, horticultural and agricultural events. The competition also involves horsemanship, including the 4-H Horse Show, livestock, and even bull riding. There is plenty of space for your trucks and trailers, as well as arenas, pastures, and paddocks for the livestock.
There is a grand parade, a car show and every child’s favorite, “Kids’ Day.” You can’t miss the demolition derby or the lawn/garden tractor-pull. ATV enthusiasts can compete in the exhilarating races. The fair also offers live entertainment (schedules vary from year to year.)
