In its 98th year, the Holmes County Fair is one of the most family friendly and affordable entertainment experiences for people of all ages to enjoy. The 2021 fair will take place on August 9 through August 14. 

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!


The Fair Office will be open on Tuesdays in June from 4-8PM to purchase Reserve Grandstand Tickets, Reserve Parking Passes, Season Passes, and Buyer Passes!

See you at the fair!
