A Message from the FDA (Fair Development Association):

Welcome to the Howard County Fair! We are glad you joined us for this annual celebration of 4-H and FFA projects.

The fairgrounds are utilized for a variety of activities throughout the year. This week is one of those times. We hope you enjoy your time at the fair and consider using the fairgrounds for any events you might be planning. We are especially proud of our new restroom facilities, and we have plans for a multipurpose building in the near future.

Be sure to consult the website and arrange your calendar to join us as a spectator or participant in the many events scheduled for fair week. Some highlights are the sale of livestock and hams, the livestock shows, carnival, horse show, ranch rodeo, 2 day rodeo, tractor pull, queen contest, prince and princess contest, baby show, and talent contest.
Good luck and thank you to all of the 4-H and FFA participants and families for your effort and attendance. A big thanks goes to the Howard County Fair Board for their hard work and dedication for a great fair!
