Midway magic

Kids Day on Wednesday, July 24, offers a great deal. 9:00am - 1:00pm Kiddieland Wristbands will be available for purchase for $17. Kiddieland Wristbands are valid for all rides in Kiddieland Only from 9:00am until 1:00pm. Individual ride tickets will also be available. 1:00pm - 11:00pm Individual ride tickets are prices at $2 each all day long until closing. All rides only 1 ticket each from 1:00 until closing.

Farmers pride

You can walk through any of the livestock barns and learn about cows, pigs, goats, llamas and more. It doesn’t get any more real than chatting with dairy farmers or their kids about life on the farm.


Heritage Park solitude

You can get away from the crush of the crowds at Heritage Park, a lush green haven where you can enjoy a treat at a picnic table or sprawl on the grass and listen to the music from the nearby park stage.


Food paradise

You can get your fill of fair food favorites such as elephant ears, cotton candy and burgers, or you can go a little more extravagant with egg rolls, steak tips and baklava. Save room for ice cream from the Dairy Barn, though. You won’t regret it! Learn more about the iconic & unique Elkhart County 4-H Fair food.


Amusements galore

There’s plenty of chances to learn: gardening tips from Master Gardeners in the Ag Hall and canning, sewing, baking and other domestic skills from the Extension Homemakers at the Home & Family Arts Building.
