The Polk County Fair Society is a non-profit organization that promotes education for the youth in our community through the Polk County Fair. Many learning experiences and life long skills are learned through exhibiting at the fair. In 2017 there were more than 6,729 exhibitors. It is also an educational showcase of agriculture in our county. We pride ourselves in providing an opportunity for town and country to come together to celebrate our county. In 2017 our attendance was approximately 37,000 individuals.
When you think of the words 'county fair' what do you think of? Do you think of the typical fair food, carnival rides, family, friends, kids, animals, exhibits, entertainment, or grandstand events? Or is it a mixture of all of the above?
For many of us the fair is more than that. The fair is hard work put in year round by our intrepid volunteers and their families. The hard work put in is all worth it to see everyone enjoy it during those 4 days at the end of July. To see everyone enjoying the fair is the blue ribbon to top off all of our hard work.
Doesn't that make you want to be part of the fair family and be part of the enjoyment had by all at the Polk County Fair?
