Making Memories and Celebrating Community
For more than 100 years, the Benton County Fair, board, volunteers and sponsors have been playing a vital role in our community supporting economic development and quality of life. While we come together to celebrate just one week out of the year with thrilling carnival rides, homemade farm to table pies, jams and artisan crafts, educational exhibits and junior livestock shows, the mission and work of the Benton County Fair is a year-long 365-day commitment. Just like the farmers and ranchers and the agricultural industry we support, there is no day off when you are tending to crops or animals.
