The Lake County Fair

Because of the outbreak of the Avian Influenza, The Indiana Board of Animal Health has suspended all poultry shows and exhibits in the state to help prevent it's spread.  You can get more information about this at the Centers for Disease Control website here

 

BeaWay back in 1852, the Lake County Agricultural Society started the fair as a way to showcase the achievements of agriculture in the county.  Back then, it was a way for the people of the county to gather for some good fun and a little competition.

Agriculture is our theme, but there is so much more...We have a huge Carnival, great Entertainment, exciting Grandstand Shows, graceful Horse Shows, Farm Animals, a free Fireworks Show, Free Petting Zoo, Contests for kids and adults and lots of great food.

We also feature the projects from the local Lake County 4-H Club Members.  These projects range from cattle to sewing, and electric to rocketry.  The 4-H building is full of these projects so you can see what the youth of Lake County can do.

Let's not overlook the adults in the county.  Our Family Arts and Crafts Building is brimming with exhibits from the talents in the county.  Photography, Quilting, Woodworking and much, much more.

In addition, there are exhibits from the gardeners in the Flower Show Building and the Agriculture Building, along with the outdoorsman exhibits in the Conservation Building.

  • Please leave your pets at home.  While we understand your pet may be friendly, some of the exhibit animals might injure your pet if frightened.
  • Do not take food or drinks into any of the barns, and be sure to use the hand sanitizers provided after your barn visits.
