Thanksgiving Weekend - October 7, 8 & 9, 2017
"Fun For The Whole Herd"
Plan Your Visit
We want you to enjoy every moment of your visit. Here are a few tips!
Check the weather and dress appropriately. Since parking is available nearby, just leave an extra jacket in the car. Hang on to your admissions ticket or wrist band!
All areas are wheelchair and stroller accessible, but parts of the fairgrounds are sodded and a bit bumpy. Also watch out for things left behind by the livestock!
Ride safely! Please read carnival rules posted at the entrance for each ride. Make sure your possessions are secured and that loose clothing and objects don't endanger yourself or others.
Be kind to the animals. Supervise your children at Old MacDonald's Farm and do not startle animals with noises or sudden movements, especially the animals involved in competition or demonstrations.
One ticket price at the gate covers entry to all fair events. Tickets to Midway rides may be purchased at the ticket booths on the carnival grounds.
