About the Fair

From the earliest beginnings 106 years ago the Inter-State Fair has been a family tradition for residents of southeast Kansas and northeast Oklahoma. Multiple generations have participated in the fair as exhibitors, spectators and workers.

The fair schedule includes activities each and every day that are designed for family entertainment. There are agricultural exhibits, a bake sale, carnival rides on the fairway, mutton bustin’ and a stick rodeo for the very young, livestock judging, fine arts exhibits, a parade, and a fair ground feed. And let’s not forget the ever popular demolition derby, country and western music festival, four-nights of fantastic PRCA rodeo, and the Ranch Rodeo!

The Inter-State Fair & Rodeo is ready for its 106th year, thanks to you who attend and make all the hard work worthwhile. When you see a member of the Fair Association, stop them, shake their hand and say “thanks.” That’s the only pay they get.
