In its 97th year, the Holmes County Fair is one of the most family friendly and affordable entertainment experiences for people of all ages to enjoy. The 2020 fair will take place on August 10 through August 15. 

The Holmes County Fair is unique, as it’s one of the few remaining fairs without open exhibition livestock shows, putting all the focus on our local 4H and FFA youth! We look forward to showcasing the youth of our county, our local businesses, and a delicious assortment of food sure to please the whole family!

See you at the fair!
