The Wasco County Fair is fast approaching. Starting this Friday, staff and volunteers will begin preparing the fairgrounds for the event. This includes the installation of shade cloth, painting, and livestock. On August 18, the livestock will begin moving to the fairgrounds and final weigh-ins will begin. The fair runs from August 19 to 22.
The Wasco County Fair is an annual event that features a variety of livestock, crafts, food, and entertainment. This year’s theme is “Summer Nights and Sparkling Lights,” and you’ll be able to enjoy a demolition derby, rodeo, small animal auctions, old-fashioned horse-drawn carriage rides, local artisans, ClockTower Ales beer garden, live music, and the infamous Smock Dogs!
