102nd Mahnomen County Fair

June 28th-30th, 2017


The Mahnomen County Fair Directors invite you to the 102nd Mahnomen County Fair. We hope that you visit the fair this year and bring your friends to what promises to be another great fair. There are many reasons to have a fair, from the great food to grandstand shows to the special entertainment.

 

Another great reason is the opportunity for you to exhibit in one or more of classes listed in this book. You will have a chance to earn premium along with a ribbon on your entry.  Advance entry allows us to have the exhibit tags and forms ready for you when you get to the fair. Advance entry forms can be emailed to mahnomenagsociety@gmail.com, mailed to Mahnomen County Agricultural Society, PO Box 183, Mahnomen, MN 56557 or dropped off at the Extension Office.   Please pay close attention to the entry times. To enter in the 4-H department, you must contact the 4-H office.

 

The Mahnomen County Fair continues to be a gathering place for county residents to visit and have fun. With your help and support we will continue this fine tradition.

 

As always, we welcome your suggestions and concerns regarding your fairgrounds and your county fair. Stop by and visit with the directors during the fair, call one of us, or send us a note to:
