History Of The Fair:

Established in 1979, the Wolcott Country Fair is the area's largest agricultural and family fun event of the summer. During the course of the annual 3-day event, over 30,000 people come to the beautiful town of Wolcott to enjoy the fair's sights and sounds. Attendees are treated to a traditional country fair with events including the judging of fruits, vegetables, baked goods, paintings and photography.

Because the Wolcott Country Fair is an agrictural fair, fair-goers can learn about farming from our antique farm equipment displays, Agrictural Tent with various displays, and of course, the Animal Tent filled with varieties of livestock including pigs, goats, sheep, cattle, chickens, rabbits and more. Scheduled events sure to please both the young and old run throughout the three day event. Many attendees will come to the fair for two or three days so that they may enjoy the variety of events including the always popular racing pigs, tractor, horse and oxen pulls.

There is so much to do at the Wolcott Country Fair including the Home Show Tent and the commercial vendors selling everything from novelty items to sheds and gazebos. Perhaps one of the most popular events at the fair isn't an event at all. It is the incredible variety of delicious food -- fried dough, sausage & peppers, hot dogs, hamburgers, steak fajitas, and so much more. And don't forget the cotton candy, candy apples, ice cream and everything else your sweet tooth can imagine.

While the children are enjoying the huge midway with kiddy rides, thrill rides and games of chance, you can enjoy listening to the many bands playing country, oldies and pop music throughout the weekend.
