The fair has the honor of being Iowa's oldest county fair and offers a variety of
activities and entertainment for the entire family.
Throughout fair week visitors can enjoy the many Livestock Shows in the
livestock barns. The 4-H and FFA clubs present their projects and bring in cows,
pigs, sheep, rabbits, geese, goats and small pets.
There are plenty of open-class shows to participate in such as the horse show,
open beef show and dog show.
The Art Hall is always full of 4-H exhibits and art work. The Art Hall will showcase
displays from Lee County towns again this year as well as old uniforms from Lee
County Schools (sports, band, cheerleading, letter jackets, etc.) and military
uniforms. As you stroll through looking at all the 4H and FFA projects, you will
also be able to view displays from the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. Please check
out the changes in the exhibitor's art hall book if interested in entering items and
if you would like to loan any items for one of the displays or would like to
volunteer, please contact email@example.com by June 1st.
A stroll around the grounds will bring you by Farmer Bill's Barn, an inter-active
children's farm to market learning site. The Ernie Rotter Barn Museum featuring
past fair memorabilia and of course, our new Pioneer Village complete with
one-room schoolhouse, general store, jail, and print shop.
Along with many other contests and vendors scattered around the grounds.
While you are at the fair stop in the Youth Learning Center which features a
number of activities and food throughout the week.
Hosted from here are Kid's Day on Thursday, Senior Day on Friday, Wine
Tasting competition on Saturday. Also on Saturday is the
Van Winkle Chess Tournament with a NEW youth division.
Then there's the Grandstand featuring the best food of the fair in the Blue
Ribbon Diner and home to the main grandstand events each evening.
So take some time off, plan your week and come to the county fair!
