The week-long county fair is a family event with carnival rides, live animals, a variety of entertainment, food and fun activities for all ages. Kids especially enjoy the opportunity to see all kinds of farm animals up close including prize winning goats, sheep, pigs, dairy cattle, horses, etc. Live entertainment includes Monster Trucks, Demolition Derby, "Fair’s Idol” Competition, and much more. At the Montgomery County Fair, you can also purchase quilting, clothing, canned goods, baked goods and vegetables from local farmers and enjoy arts and crafts exhibits of local youth.
