Winneshiek County Fair
No Midwest area is complete without a county fair. Decorah is host to one of the best, the Winneshiek County Fair. It has something for everyone from entertainment, education, vendors and of course, food!
Every year, the fair is host to many forms of entertainment. Various live bands perform on the Grandstand or on the Midway and they always draw a crowd. This year it features William Michael Morgan, Tracy Lawrence and Travis Tritt! There are also several contests to take in. There is a Hobby/Shop contest for those versed in manufacturing. The Bill Riley Talent Show always brings out Winneshiek County’s best. Got a sweet tooth? Check out the bake-off, but don’t tell your Mom and Grandma if it’s better than their own creations! The 4-H and FFA contests are a culmination of lots of hard work from our local youth, preparing them for their lives ahead. There’s also the Bulls and Barrels event for any rodeo enthusiast! Last but not least is the Fair Queen contest to nominate our county representative!
Don’t forget the food. Who could forget it? Fair time means some delicious food for all to have. Who can go wrong with the classic fair food choices? Get your corn dog, funnel cake, cheese curd and anything fried you can imagine fix here! The vendor selection at the Winneshiek County Fair is as diverse as you can think of and deserves a fair of its own just to have time to see it all. What fair wouldn’t be complete without rides and games? The Winneshiek County Fair will not disappoint, make sure you set aside enough time to take it all in and we’ll see you there!
