Welcome to the Marcus Community Fair! We strive to bring you fun filled, family orientated entertainment.  Whether it is to watch or compete in one of our open livestock shows, show off your talent in one of our many contests, enjoy free public entertainment or experience yummy fair food, we have something for everyone.  See you at the fair!!

2019 marks 83 years of tradition that we've come to know and love as "The Marcus Community Fair". This annual event has always had a strong focus on family, and serves as a showcase of the talents of our youth, and others of all ages, by providing a means of education, exhibition, and competition. The Fair highlights our communities ties to agriculture, industry, and businesses; all of which provide the backbone to our community. The Fair has also become an annual reunion where old friends and family have an opportunity for reaquaintance, and remembrance.

2019 is the 35th straight year of free gate admission. Funding is made possible through various fundraiser's, county funding, state funding , grant writing, and by generous local supporters.

The Marcus Community Fair provides a significant economic impact on our community, and in turn, the State of Iowa.

An eighteen member board works diligently year round to find, promote, and schedule activities and it works hard at maintaining an expanding fair grounds worthy of such an event. Other volunteers serve on committees and help us with numerous tasks during the Fair. Without this kind of support, the Fair we have today would not exist.
