2019 Siouxland County Fairs



From the animals, interactive fun, and live entertainment to the glory and defeat from entering competitions, county fairs are one of the best parts of late summer around Siouxland!
If you live in Sioux City, our county fair, the Woodbury County will be July 31st through August 4th in Moville. You can find more info in my 2019 Woodbury County Fair post.

 Here's the scoop on as many other nearby fairs as I could find details for, divided by state and then put in alphabetical order.
