About Us:

The Marion County Fair had been held every year in Marion since 1851! It is held during the first week of July with a glorifying fireworks show on July 4th. During Christmas, the fairgrounds displays a magnificent light show.

In 1950 the Veterans Memorial Coliseum on the fairgrounds was completed in honor of World War II veterans. The Veterans Memorial Coliseum and the Marion County Fairground have hosted many important people and events. The Coliseum is heated and has a great sound system. Many sporting events, social functions and business affairs have been performed there. Other structures on the fairgrounds include a 1,800 seat grandstand, a heated Evers Arena, beef barn, show area and log cabin.
