August 16–21, 2016
The Steele County Free Fair is much more than a county fair…it’s a family affair! As the largest county fair in Minnesota, our fair offers a wide variety of events and attractions and admission is free!
For one week each year, the fairgrounds in Owatonna rivals a large shopping center. Vendors from 25 states and Canada bring a wide range of goods, from crystal to quilts, art to furniture, potato peelers to RV’s. Over 100 food stands will tease the taste buds of fairgoers and have them eating everything from cotton candy to prime rib. Kids and adults of all ages will enjoy events from pig races to puppet shows. Thrill seekers will enjoy the 40 plus midway rides provided by Gold Star Amusements. or one of the many attractions in Adventure Alley. Music lovers of all ages can visit the free entertainment stages and tap their feet to all kinds of different music. The Grandstand offers thrilling attactions from demo derby to bull riding. With so much to see and do, it’s no wonder that the Steele County Free Fair was named “One of the Top Events in North America.”
Stop back throughout the year for further updates!
