Information updated October 2021.

Located at the fairgrounds on Wright County Road 6 (north of Highway 12) in Howard Lake, the Wright County Fair is a summer tradition that always draws a crowd.

The fair came back in full force in 2021 after being cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Wright County residents turned out to celebrate the 150th Wright County Fair.

Each year, there’s an abundance of things to see and do all five days – a 5K run, classic car and truck show, bingo, lumberjack competitions, pie-eating contests, K-9 demonstrations, a military program, and an arts and crafts show.

The petting zoo houses animals of all kinds. 4-H barns showcase swine, poultry, cows, goats, chickens, and many other animals. Horse showings take place daily.

In the grandstand, attendees can find tractor pulls, mud racing, demolition derbys, and professional wrestling.

Free entertainment is available at the fair, including live music, blacksmith demonstrations, and a talent show. The midway, which has rides, paintball, and games, offers deals with an armband purchase multiple days of the fair. There is also a child’s bicycle drawing each of the four days.

The Wright County Fair will return in July 2022. A full schedule of events and additional information is available at www.wrightcountyfair.org.
