The Lancaster Fair takes up a whole 65 acres, but there's something different to see, hear, or do in nearly every square foot. Year after year after year—every year-after-year since 1870, in fact—the week-long Fair has signaled the end of summer better than an auctioneer counting down the seconds ever could. Through it all, the Fair has served as an annual celebration of the region's roots, history, and family values—a showcase of what makes life in the great North Woods so unique.
Each visit offers a mix of educational exhibits and honest entertainment. During your visit, you could sow your knowledge with agricultural activities, 4-H exhibits, and displays of vegetables, flowers, and the county's largest pumpkin. Or you could simply kick back and enjoy leisure activities ranging from concerts and demolition derbies while animals compete for the inheritance of their owners' farms in spectacles such as horse-pulling events, oxen skills challenges, and sheep-dog trials.
