Upper Missouri Valley Fair Has Something for Everyone

Posted: Updated:

Event coordinators say there's something for everyone at this year's Upper Missouri Valley Fair.

"There's lots to do for everybody of all ages, from children all the way up to mom and dad," says Reachell Littlefield.

In addition to rides and carnival games, the fair will host a variety of shows and concerts over the next three nights. The fair is also home to a large 4-H competition, complete with sheep, hogs and cattle. 

"This kind of gives you a picture of what the agricultural community in Williams County and Northwest North Dakota and Northeast Montana is all about," says NDSU extension agent Warren Froelich.

Froelich says the 4-H building is fun and educational, regardless of how much you know about agriculture.

"Just stroll through the barns, and you'll have an opportunity to lay your hands on some of the animals. Most of our animals here are very docile, very well behaved. The goats and the sheep, the little kids will like to touch base with them, and they're easily accessible."

One addition to this year's fair is a demolition derby on Sunday. The fair's entrance has also been moved to the eastern side of the complex. Adults can purchase buttons in advance or at the gate.

"Children twelve and under are free, no need to have a button to get them in. We've got lots of stuff for them to do," says Littlefield.  

The fair runs through Sunday, and a full schedule can be found at UMVF.com.
