Plan to attend the 2019 West Otter Tail County Fair, July 17th-20th, 2019!

Each year, we promise fun for the entire family. From Grandstand events like Touch a Truck, Modified Tractor Pull, and Demo Derby to a host of carnival rides provided by the Mighty Thomas Carnival, there is something for everyone!

The West Otter Tail County Fair also offers plenty of free entertainment each day and lots of things to see from our 4-H'ers. Browse the Children's Barn, see our 4-H exhibits, get the kids entered in our annual Pedal Pull.

All that and more...plus the best fair food around!
