One of my family’s favorite Northwest Arkansas traditions is attending the Washington County Fair in Fayetteville.
For 13 years, we’ve visited the animals, walked through the exhibition halls, eaten ourselves sick on fair food and whirled and twirled on the rides.
Of course, the Washington County Fair — which is the largest county fair in the state — has been running for much longer than 13 years. It was founded in 1857. How cool is that?
This year, the fair will be on Sept. 1-5. If you’d like to take your kids this year and have some tickets already in your pocket, we’ve got you covered. We’ve got $100 worth of fair tickets to give away!
Heads-up: It’s $5 for ages 6 and up to get into the fair except on Tuesday night when it’s only $2 (with a canned food item). The carnival midway opens at 5 p.m. every day, except for noon on Saturday.
HOW TO ENTER: If you’d like to win the $100 worth of tickets, just click on the words “leave a comment” at the bottom of this post and tell us your favorite memory from the Washington County Fair. If you’ve never been, tell us what you love about county fairs. The funny-looking chickens? The ferris wheel? The nostalgia?
