The Mighty Howard County Fair offers the best 5 days of fun and family events/activities the area has to offer. Affordable entertainment options, free entertainment, fair foods of all types and tastes and the opportunity enjoy social time with your neighbors and friends make the Fair a 'must do' event for all.

The Society has invested in the future of the area youth and educating the public on current agricultural production practices with the construction of the Ag Education Center. The Center opened for the 2016 Mighty Howard County Fair. Click here for more details.

Website Issue

Our link to purchase grandstand tickets on-line is not yet set up. The website was transferred to a new host, and this has caused a few glitches on the site, including the on-line option to purchase tickets.  We hope to get the site repaired soon and have the on-line ticket site working properly.

Tickets can be purchased the day of the grandstand shows. We have plenty of room, especially for our concerts. The main grandstand can seat approximately 4000 people. In addition, there is room on the race track in front of the stage for another 2500 people for the concerts. We do not have reserved seating.

Go to our Facebook page, www.facebook.com/MHCFair and look at concert photos from 2015 & 2016 Fair. Also follow the Fair’s Facebook page for instant updates and information.

Thank you for your patience.
