Held from 11am to 10pm Saturday, June 3rd to Sunday, June 11th, the fair will be closed to the general public on June 5th and 6th.

Enjoy the smell of freshly roasted sweet corn and wafts of funnel cake in the air, and don’t miss the views atop the Ferris Wheel, plus there’ll even be pig races! With 15+ food concessions and 60+ commercial vendors, we can’t wait to have a corn dog in one hand and a turkey leg in the other!
