What Is the Ozark Empire Fair?
The Ozark Empire Fair is a week-long event where locals and visitors can come together to have fun during the summer. When you visit the fair, you can see how the traditions from the early 1900s still exist today. What started as a traveling display of local area handwork and crafts became a full-fledged fair with diverse activities.
In the 1930s, the fair added the promotion of agriculture, horticulture, manufacture, dairying, poultry, products of domestic industry and raising livestock to its roster. Since then, the fair has grown to support crafters, farmers, industrialists and more. Various exhibitions and booths get set up each year to promote the industries to fairgoers.
Additionally, many competitions occur on the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds, from livestock to crafts. You and your family will enjoy walking around the fairgrounds and checking out every display.
