The county fair tradition which began in Brown County in 1867 continues to thrive. We will be observing our Sesquicentennial in 2017 with special events and attractions being planned. Our fair brings back memories of an old-fashioned county fair. This year’s highlights will be the traditional demolition derbies on Wednesday and Saturday nights, Tractor Pull on Friday night, senior citizens program, kids day activities, livestock shows, Exotic Animals, open class, 4-H, FFA and commercial exhibits. The carnival will be available all five days of the fair. There will be a variety of free entertainment in the Entertainment Hall as well as the Civic Center stage. The 2017 Brown County Free Fair will once again be hosting the state show of the Minnesota Gladiolus Society on Saturday and Sunday.
Stop in and spend an hour or spend the day! Enjoy the rides and exhibits, have some great food and a cool beverage, visit with your neighbors and friends, or stroll through the climate-controlled Civic Center on the grounds for additional exhibits and entertainment. You can walk right in: there’s no gate charge, and the parking is free, too!
