The 2018 Brown County Fair runs Wednesday, August 15, through Sunday, August 19, featuring daily carnival rides, kid’s shows, agricultural exhibits and demonstrations, live events, food and drinks, entertainment, and much more. The 2018 edition of the fair will pay homage to Brown County’s 200th Anniversary.

“The Brown County Fair is an annual tradition that I’m particularly fond of,” says Brown County Executive Troy Streckenbach. “The fair started in Brown County on September 2nd, 1909. Since then, the fair has grown to its current form as an exciting five-day event. After visiting the Brown County Fair this weekend, I encourage everyone to head over to the Neville Public Museum’s Our Brown County exhibit to see the fair’s backstory along with other historic people, places, photos, and artifacts celebrated during our 200th Anniversary.”

“The Brown County Fair is a venue to showcase the youth of our county and surrounding communities with all the work they do with their projects all year long,” says Brown County Fair President Steve Corrigan. “Between their projects and the valuable lessons they learn through working with 4-H, FFA and open classes, I take great pride in being part of the Brown County Fair.”
