The Grant County Fair is one of the many county fairs around the country that support and showcase our agriculture and the education of our youth. The fair highlights the exhibition and competition of the best domestic products of our area. Ribbons, plaques and trophies are awarded in a wide variety of categories such as livestock, jams and jellies, handicrafts and baked goods. The Rodeo and musial entertainment along with other attractions are also part of the week-long celebration. There is something for everyone. The most important aspect of our fair is teaching youth production skills through competition and then demonstrating these values to our community. Our youth learn the value of hard work, business and skills that will help them succeed throughout their lives. The fair in turn showcases the result of the youth's hard work and dedication to their animals and other agricultural endeavors that make our country what it is.
