*NEW FOR 2017: Digital Signs Throughout the Fair*

This year we’ve enhanced our visitor’s experience by providing digital signs throughout our grounds. On each of these displays you’ll find valuable information like:

  • A daily fair schedule
  • Headliner performance reminders
  • Video clips from around the fair
  • Messages from sponsors

These helpful displays will be located to the right and left of our main stage, in buildings 2 and 3, as well as on mobile carts around our fairgrounds. All of them are powered by DXNotifi, a solution built by Magenium Solutions.



  • Kid Davie – Stilt Walker / Magician
  • Oscar the Robot – Entertainment that will create memories - Look for Oscar roaming the Fairgrounds having fun talking with fairgoers.
  • Fast Action Motorsports Nascar Race Track
  • Nascar Style Racing Simulator
  • Button the Clown - Look for Buttons driving around the Fairgrounds in his cool “convertible.”
  • The Singing Cowboys: Boots & Britches–1923 Dream Camper Show & Exhibit in Ag-Ventureland
  • Bear Hollow Wood Carvers – Creating Wood Sculptures Daily!
