THE

EVENTS

For 143 years, the White County Fair has been delivering fun for all ages

From traditional events like Harness racing and the annual Queen contest to brand new events like Go Kart Racing and the return of the Tractor Pull, no other fair in the region brings quite the variety, level of competition, or fun that our annual White County Fair does.  We've got thundering hooves and serious horse power, incredible talent, smarts, humor and beauty, phenomenally powerful motors, cross county rivalries and delicious food.  You'll leave the White County Fair with plenty of memories made on the midway!

White Co Fair Queen Contest Monday, August 9th
7pm  ($10 admission)

The White County Fair Queen Contests have enjoyed a resurgence of interest, participation and draws a full grandstand every summer.  The 2019 winner, Kelsi Kessler, went on to win the state pageant in December and due to the pandemic reigned for two years.  She'll pass the crown on to a new White County Fair Queen on Monday night.  Junior and Little Miss contestants will also strut their stuff.  For more information, contact Hannah Sailer at 618.384.1670.

The White County Fair Demolition Derby is truly the grand daddy of them all in our region!
