About us:

Montana Fair is an agricultural celebration in the historic tradition of fairs. It is the region's largest event and was attended by over 243,000 people in 2007. Held at MetraPark in Billings, MontanaFair celebrates for nine days beginning the second weekend in August. Nearly 10,000 people will earn cash and ribbons for their entries which range from beer, wine, bunnies, crocheting, horticulture, horses, cattle, goats, sheep, pigs, petit-point, pickles, to hobbies, and arts and crafts.

The Thomas Carnival operates the midway featuring rides and games. A shady park for kid's rides accommodates families and the free Kid's World exhibit nearby offers free games, activities, and a petting zoo for small children. Food choices are abundant at the fair featuring the traditional corn dog, BBQ, corn on the cob, 'Vikings On a Stick', fresh lemonade, and beer gardens.

Stages around the grounds provide free entertainment that can include music, comedy, hypnosis, kid's entertainment, variety acts, draft horses, and more. Visit our Free Acts page to see this year's free entertainment lineup. You can catch them all with your gate admission to MontanaFair. And make sure you catch the incredible local talent on the Community Stage.

Night Shows in the MetraPark Arena offer top notch concerts, rodeo, bull riding, and arenacross. The fall race meet will begin at the fair as horse racing with pari-mutuel wagering takes place the final two afternoons of the fair.
