Allen County Fair

The 27th-annual Allen County Fair is currently underway at the Allen County Fairgrounds, running through July 31st. The fair offers many forms of entertainment for visitors, including a 4x4 truck pull, team pig wrestling, and fireworks. 

“Our most loved events [are] the truck pulls, demo derby, and hot air balloons,” said Michelle Love, Secretary for the Allen County Fairgrounds. “[And] people comment year after year on how amazing the midway is," Love added, "Not only because of the diversity of rides and games, but [because] the staff is friendly and professional [as well]."

Other events to look forward to are Saturday's tug-a-truck event, and the outhouse races on Sunday. “This [outhouse race event] is growing crazy at fairs and festivals nationwide,” Love stated. Multiple country music bands will also be preforming on various nights throughout the week. Dan Burnell of Backroad 39 will be preforming the opening night, followed on Wednesday by Janie Anne & Miss Kitty’s Revenge. The final band to perform is the Wagon Wheel Band, which will perform Saturday night, 7-10 pm.

One of the biggest goals for the fair is “creating a family-friendly atmosphere where young and old can come and enjoy themselves,” Love said.
