Get ready to see the world at the Boundary County Fair!

 
August 5, 2022

The most festive week of the year in Boundary County kicks off bright and early Tuesday morning, August 9, as the entire community comes together to celebrate who we are and the bounties of this wonderful place, as people young and old bring in their season's best to display at the Boundary County Fair. This year's theme is "Around the World in Five Days," and it will provide convincing evidence that there's no place quite like this awesome place we call home!

Cotton candy, exhibits, contests, the delectable aroma of foods brought out only at fair time, the symphony musicians and lowing cattle, clucking chickens, squealing hogs and bleating sheep a background sound track play to the smiles and camaraderie of friends who may see one another only at the fair.
