ANIMALS AT THE FAIR

Animals on display all day, Wednesday - Saturday, in all livestock barns

Animals are the #1 reason visitors come to Fair in the United States! This is the only place you can get up close and personal with your favorite goat or pig without living on your own farm. It’s the last best place to learn all about the people who feed your family.

Critter viewing available all week!

Rabbits, goats, beef, hogs, poultry, sheep, dairy cows, and horses on display all day, Wednesday through Saturday, in all livestock barns.

See our Schedule Overview for a complete listing of animal showings and events during Fair.'

How Do I See Them?

All animals may be found in the barns. Here are some tips when visiting:

Keep your movements contained as you stroll down the barn aisles. We are glad you’re here, but sometimes animals can’t see you coming. You can talk to them all you want!

Ask any animal owner if it is alright to pet something before you pet it. Not all animals enjoy being touched.

Wash your hands before and after you visit the barns! Hand washing stations are located at most barns as well as the shopping and food row.

You can easily see all the animals showing this year! At the Northwest Farm Credit Services Bonanza Barn, it’s much easier to check out the shows. You will find animals shown by kids of all ages. There is a show almost every day, so check the schedule to make sure you don’t miss them!

Parents, if your family has never witnessed a livestock auction, this is a great place to see one! The 4-H Market Sale is at 5 pm on Friday, July 19, in the Northwest Farm Credit Services Bonanza Barn.
