Location & Times
The Lincoln County Fair is the official Fair for the county. Operated under the auspices of the County Commissioners for the primary purpose of education, the fair encourages the people of Lincoln County towards raising better farm and garden products. Although entertainment is provided to attract attention and attendance, the Fair is educational in all its various divisions. School exhibits, club booths, commercial exhibits, along with federal, state and county exhibits all have their part in the educational value of the Fair.
By offering many premiums in all phases of 4-H and youth work, the Fair aids materially in encouraging participation this valuable training for our county’s youth. Known as a place to meet old friends and to make new ones, the Lincoln County Fair has been a long standing tradition in Lincoln County since its incorporation in 1909. The Fair hosts hundreds of fair exhibitors who compete in various 4-H, agricultural and domestic divisions, showcasing Lincoln County’s best craftsmanship, animals, vegetables, plants and flowers. County residents, young and old, bring their best to the fair in an effort to win that blue ribbon. 4-H members complete their projects for the year with their fair exhibits, livestock, horse and dog shows, and market livestock sale.
Kidsville (kids’ carnival at the Fair) offers youth an opportunity to challenge themselves and their friends to various games of skill, win prizes, and to just have fun. A Mechanical Bull, Bungee Trampoline and Human Gyroscope and some of the favorites. Midway style games, clowns, face painters and train rides all keep the kids busy and entertained.
Friday is Family Day with Co-op Day events and programs during the day, Friday Night at the Games in the Rodeo Arena at 7pm providing good old fashioned family fun, and a Family Dance in the Pavilion at the Fish Pond & Park following the games.
