GRUNDY COUNTY FAIR

South 4th Street
Grundy Center, IA
319-824-2311
www.grundycountyfair.com
Jul. 17 - 22, 2018

Attendance: 4,200

Carnival: None

Amenities:
The Grundy County Fair has always been about family, discovery, 4-H, FFA and making memories as far back as 1874. Entertainment has always been at the forefront with livestock shows and nightly activities including early accounts of horse racing and even performing pigs! Racing events have always been a popular draw including Demo derbies, Figure 8 racing, combine demo, trailer races and tractor pulls bringing in the crowds to cheer on locals to racing glory.

Every year we thankfully receive funding from the legislature to upgrade our buildings and facilities. The overall goal is to make the fair bigger and better every year and continue to have the family fair atmosphere where everyone feels safe and has a great time. The family pulled together in 2003 when a storm destroyed our swine and beef building causing us to improvise, consolidate and work together as a county to make the fair happen. And it did in a big way!

With the growth of our community comes the expansion of our clubs and our fair board. It is such a joy to see recent 4-H exhibitors stepping forward to become board members, show superintendents 4-H volunteers and mentors. We are now able to specialize with new members and fresh ideas contributing to make the Grundy County Fair a place you want to be!
