Washington County Fair

2537 North McConnell Road
Fayetteville, AR 72704


The Washington County Fair is the largest and most established county fair in Arkansas. Founded in 1857, The Washington County Fair is a reflection of the past decades of farmers, business leaders, volunteers and youth that have, with hard work and dedication, made The Washington County Fair what it is today.

Our history reveals many past events, such as baseball games, horse races and community dinners. Although the fair was suspended during the Second World War for a few years, the following year the fair was reorganized and has been going strong ever since.

In the past few years we have introduced new events such as our tractor pull, Dutch oven cook-off and beauty pageant. In 2007 we began our partnership with Bikes, Blues & BBQ and the fairgrounds became the official campgrounds for the event. Since then, we have had great success and expanded the activities at the fairgrounds during BB&B.

Our future continues to grow each year and it allows us to continue helping the youth of Washington County, while also promoting agriculture.
