The County Fair

Every August Rexburg hosts the Madison County Fair.  Admission is free and there is always lots to see.  Kids and adults can enjoy free shows, browse prize-winning livestock, view local art, eat yummy fair food, and then throw it up on the carnival rides. 😉

2015 Fair

The Madison County Fair starts Wednesday August 12th and runs until Saturday August 15th. This year will feature a celebrity hypnotist “TerranceB” a “Crazy 8 Race”  and of course a rodeo.
