This year’s theme: Where Fun Meets Farm

The daily countdown to the Clark County Fair is down to less than four days.

If you haven’t already, it is time to start planning for “Where Fun Meets Farm.”

The 153rd Clark County Fair opens Friday, Aug. 4, and will run for 10 days. That’s 10 days of concerts, events, dog shows, wizard spells, parrot talk, livestock, food, rides, and more.

The fair opens every day at 10 a.m., but keep in mind that the rides in the carnival open daily at noon.

On opening day, the Fun Meets Farm Parade will begin at 2 p.m. along the midway at the Clark County Fairgrounds.

A reminder that there is no more pancake breakfast on the opening morning of the fair this year. Instead, Fred Meyer is scheduled to present a check for $10,000 to the Clark County Food Bank. 

Fred Meyer is still offering free tickets to the opening day of the fair. Free admission coupons are required and are available at select local Fred Meyer locations through Aug. 3 while supplies last. Those coupons are good for free entry from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Aug. 4. 

The grandstands will feature concerts on each of the first four nights, with rodeo, demolition derby, utility terrain vehicle racing, truck racing, and monster trucks filling out the grandstand schedule.

One of this year’s main attractions is Wizard’s Challenge, where folks can experience a fantasy world where science comes to life.

Another highlight this year is sure to be DogTown.

The Washington State Fiddler Championships return Aug. 5-6. 

Butler Amusements is back for Summer’s Best Carnival.

And, of course, the non-human stars of the fair will be there. Take a selfie with cows, horses, goats, llamas, sheep, chickens and more inside the barns.

Ticket information is on the website, too.

Fair tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the gate, $8 and $10 for seniors 62 and older, or $7 and $9 for children 7 through 12. Children 6 and under are free. Parking is $8. Keep in mind that rides are extra costs at the carnival, and there are wristbands for sale that offer the best ride value. They are available online, as well.
