Barton County Fair


July 6-10, 2022


     It’s always bittersweet to put the lid on another fair. As we look back at the last year, it is easy to focus on the adversity and the challenges - instead, we choose to focus on the positive! In the shadow of those challenges, our volunteers and community put on an AMAZING event!!! Three amazing concerts, some “old faithful” favorite events like the tractor pull, mutton bustin’, pedal tractor pull, race car game, and cornhole tournament, and some new events including family fun night games and sand volleyball tournament! The exhibits were top-notch, both open class and 4H, with lots of entries and lots of animals. Finally, the sale/auction was amazing, and the community REALLY turned out in support of the kids and this event.

     An event like this would not be possible without the generosity of our sponsors!!! Please take a moment to look through the businesses and individuals listed below and in the fair book, and make sure to thank them for their support next time you see them!! Also, a big shout out to the ARMY of volunteers who work tirelessly year-round to make this event possible each year - Our community is better because you’re in it!!! THANK YOU!!!

See you next July!!
