Worth County Fair

1206 3rd Ave N
Northwood, IA 50459


The Worth County Fair Association has been entertaining families since 1879. The fair board over the years has been blessed to work with such an amazing and supportive community. The focus of our fair has always been on our youth, our 4-H and FFA members have played a big role in the growth and continued success of our fair. Come to the Worth County Fair in mid-June and you will see 4-H buildings full of projects, multiple livestock shows going on per day, amazing homemade food prepared in our 4-H food stand along with other entertainment and attractions.

Over the past 138 years we have had many updates and additions to our buildings and grounds. Some of the most recent updates have been a renovation to our grandstand, and our food stand went from two small serving buildings to one larger building with seating, all under one roof. This past year we were blessed with a new Fair Office Building; the building includes our fair office, a Community Room, which is used for meetings and events and offices for ISU Extension and Outreach of Worth County, this building will also be used as a storm shelter. Our grounds include camping spots, walking trail and many other attractions that are used all summer long. The improvements to our beautiful grounds would not be possible with out the generous private and business donations along with contributions from Worth County Development Authority. The WCDA is a non-profit arm of Diamond Jo Casino. It recieves 5.76 percent of casino revenue and oversees it distribution.

Countless volunteer hours by Worth County residents, groups and business are put in each year to make our Fair a success and our grounds beautiful. The Worth County Fair board is grateful.
