1 pm The Excitement of Harness Racing!

The event that started it all. Harness Racing will once again be one of the highlights of the 2021 Gogebic County Fair.

This long standing tradition is a fair favorite. For years, fairgoers have been watching the Trotters and Pacers speed around the half-mile track.

1.00 pm Jim Favero

Back by popular demand again is local favorite Jim Favero with his much-loved accordion and polka music show. He will be performing timeless music enjoyed by all age groups on the small stage.

5.00 pm The Youth Challenge

Area youth will compete in a variety of fun events in which each team will compete to win prize money to help support their club. Each team consists of 6 youth members between the ages of 14-19 years old. 

7.00 pm Tom Katalin and the Highway 41 Band:

Tom Katalin and the Highway 41 Band are a country group from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula offering an act that is a proven crowd pleaser. They provide a wide range of musical talents, humor, and crowd interaction that guarantees a great time for all.

5-7 pm Mike Magee returns To The Fair

Mike Magee has been writing and performing music both with bands and as a solo acoustic act for many years throughout Northeast and Central Wisconsin. Along with many originals, he performs covers of classics with his own personal, unique twist.

Fairgoers will recognize Mike’s family as long-time regulars on the harness racing circuit and we are delighted that Mike has also become part of our regular music lineup.
