From their earliest beginnings, county fairs were where local farmers would bring their best stock to be judged against their neighbors for bragging rights and trade stock. That tradition Farm animals at the Union Fair.continues today and you can join in.

Why not take a break from the other activities at the fair and enjoy watching either a sheep or beef show to see who wins the blue ribbon and bragging rights this year? Also, you can take a walk through the barns and chat with the farmers to learn about where your food comes from, how much milk a dairy cow can produce in a day and the difference between a steer and oxen.

Don’t miss the chance to wander through our newly refurbished poultry barn and vote on your favorite bird. Don’t miss spending time with our animals while at the fair.

While you are traveling through our livestock areas, please notice our new, white hand sanitizer stations. After you have visited with our animals, please use hand sanitizer. We care about your health.

You don’t have to be a farmer to join in at our Barn Yard Games! Take a chance and join in on either the round bale or square bale race and for our younger fair goers you can take part in our egg race or toss. It’s a lot of fun and you can take home your own ribbon.

Youth Market Auction
Again this year, Union Fair will be hosting the annual Youth Market Auction. This is an opportunity for our local youth to take part in a year-long project to raise a beef steer, Market lamb or new this year, laying hens! They then will sell them at auction for local people and businesses to purchase these exceptional, locally raised products!
