What would a fair
be without the animals?
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
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
Youth Market Auction
Again this year, Union Fair will be hosting the
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
