The Ellis County Fair is a celebration for 4-H members and other youth and adults to show off their creative skills, hard work and other endeavors to the community. These exhibits include visual arts, quilting, gardening, baking, photography and large animals such as steers, sheep, swine and horses and small animals such as rabbits, poultry, cats and dogs.
The entertainment side of the fair includes races, mutton busting, rodeos, concerts, a combine demolition derby and car demolition. We also offer free entertainment on the midway, free nightly concerts by local bands, karaoke contests, balloon artists and a Safety Fair. A variety of indoor exhibits and commercial vendors are set up in the air-conditioned buildings.
The fair keeps getting better and bigger each year. Last years free entertainment proved to be success with our pig races, Professor Farquar, and Randy’s Music Jam. The Midway was packed every night and we hope you can join us for the 2014.
