ABOUT THE FAIR:

Midland County Fair Inc. was incorporated in August 2010 and is a 501(C)4 nonprofit organization.

The Midland County Horseshoe Arena serves as the host and event venue for the fair. The Horseshoe complex is ideal due to its multiple performance venues—the Main Arena, the Education Building, the Live Stock Building, and Outdoor Arena and Livestock Barn, plus large parking areas and approximately 100 acres of surrounding grounds. The Main Arena and Education Building provide a great air-conditioned environment to cool off during the hot summer months.

The above information has been provided by the Midland County Fair. The Midland County Fair is held annually the 4th weekend in August, and is projected to produce over $900,000 in direct visitor spending dollars to the Midland Economy over the four day event – Midland Convention & Visitors Bureau.
The mission of the Midland County Fair is to produce a family fun fair, in the tradition of a traditional fair by enhancing and promoting education, agriculture, and entertainment to the Midland Community and Surrounding Areas.
