    Jackson County Fair Attractions

    Jackson County Fair attracts approximately 100,000 people every year.  We hope to see you this year!

    There’s something for everyone to enjoy at the fair:

    • The midway is one of the main attractions of the fair. It attracts people of all ages to enjoy rides, concessions, games and more.
    • Many enjoy coming to the fair just to see the large selection of tractors and farm equipment on display. It seems the young ones especially love being farmers.
    • There are many buildings of interest and exhibits to browse through during your time at the Jackson County Fair.
    • The animal shows and auctions in the Show Barn and the Pavilion provides for many entertaining events and the hard work of the 4-H shines bright.
    • There are great places to eat and socialize with others at the Jackson County Fair. “Lawn Chair Observers Row” is tradition at the fair with many bringing chairs to be spectators and visit with friends.
    • FFA’s “Young McDonald’s Farm” is a favorite of fair goers. With everything from puppies, kittens and baby ducks to displays of awards and contests, the Future Farmer’s of America have something for everyone to enjoy.

    Name: "Dorothy in Wonderland" presented by The Jackson County Young Artists' Theatre
    Date: July 21, 2017
    Time: 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    Freely adapted from "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz", "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland," and "Through the Looking Glass,"  this play imagines what might happen if our favorite characters from Oz got lost in Wonderland. Not only must Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion, Glinda, and the Wizard find each other, but they must also join forces with, and sometimes against, Alice and her mad friends, including the Mad Hatter, the March Hare, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, Humpty Dumpty, the Cheshire Cat, the Caterpillar, and more, to defeat the tyrannical Queen of Hearts or else none of them might ever find their way home. Unfair accusations, mistaken identities, and much confusion ensue between so many beloved characters when the fantasy worlds of Wonderland and Oz collide.
