Newaygo County Ag Fair

August 6-12, 2022 - Newaygo County Fairgrounds

Join us for a week of family fun with a variety of activities and events at this year's Newaygo County Fair!  The Newaygo County Agricultural Fair Association exists to provide educational experiences and fun for the public and its Fair participants, promoting the area’s agriculture and youth.

Watch for updates when you Like and Follow us on Facebook! We are a 501-c3 non-profit organization that receives no federal or state funding.  All funds are generated from the proceeds of the annual fair, facility rental income, local grants and private donations.  The cost to maintain fairgrounds operations is over $140,000 annually.  The major expenses are driven by utility costs and insurance coverage for our facility.

The Newaygo County Agricultural Society was formed in April of 1955 when area leaders recognized a need to promote agriculture in the county. The first elected directors of the society were President Earl Smalligan, Vice President Richard Dobben, Secretary Lyle Myers, Assistant Secretary Clarence Johnson, and Treasurer Donald McKinley.  Sixteen elected township representatives and community leaders completed the Fairboard.  On August 23, 1955, the first Newaygo County Fair was held at Babcock Field behind Fremont High School (where the gymnasium is now).  Exhibits were housed in tents and in the bus garage.  There were 800 exhibits on display including over 100 dairy animals, 20 head of beef, saddle horses, hogs, poultry, rabbits and inanimate entries.  The fair was held over three days and included youth and adult exhibits, livestock shows, fat stock auction, pulling contests and band concerts to encourage people to visit the fair.
