Our Albert Lea Branch had a great time participating in the Freeborn County Fair.
The projects and exhibits were amazing and we gave each 4-H person a $1.00 coupon for the Cloverstand or the Malt Stand.
This fair was founded in 1883 and has been delivering exciting entertainment for more than a century.

Home - MIDWESTIX

With social distancing requirements and the restrictions on mass gatherings due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Freeborn County Commissioners have suspended all activities at the Freeborn County Fairgrounds until further notice. Due to this decision, the Freeborn County Fair is postponed until 2021. This was a very difficult decision for Freeborn County, but health, safety and financial stability must be the top focus. This decision was made in the best interest of all involved.

The Freeborn County Fairboard is looking forward to the 2021 Fair and they are in the process of attempting to re-book the 2020 entertainers for the 2021 Fair. This will depend on each entertainer’s schedule.

If you purchased 2020 reserved tickets, season passes or passports online, through Midwest Tix, refunds will be processed within the next 2 weeks. These will be processed automatically – no action is required. Please note: Online purchases cannot be refunded by the Fair Office.

If you purchased tickets, in person at the Fair Office, information will follow on the process to get refunds. All tickets will need to be turned in to the Fair Office to obtain your refund.

The Fair Office is currently closed due to the “Stay at Home” order. Email [email protected] with questions.

03/18/2020

The Fair Office will be closed until further notice.

Thanks for your understanding during this crazy time - please do what you can to keep the community safe!

About Freeborn County Fair

The Freeborn County Fairgrounds is not just for the annual fair. We are easily accessible from I-90 and I-35 and can accommodate a small birthday party in our four season Fairlane Building to a large RV rally.

The fairgrounds encompass approximately 45 acres and has several buildings that can be rented for a variety of shows, meetings, parties, weddings, RV rallies and livestock shows.

The Fairlane Community Building is air conditioned with a full service kitchen and public restrooms and has hosted several large weddings.

The swine barn, cattle barn, horse barn and judging arena can be used for non-fair livestock ad horse shows. Recently we have hosted the Tennessee Walk show, Cowboy Mounted Shoot Horse show, March Madness and the Spring Barrow show.

Could you please inform us why you are rethinking holding the horse shows at your fair?
Does anyone know the prices for the demos tonight? Also, do they charge a fee at the gate just to get into the fairgrounds if you're just going to the demos?
Had so much fun showing horses @ The Freeborn County Fair yesterday!
Not happy had to pay $10 a person to walk a fair there wasn't much to do at all
Thoroughly enjoyed Darci Lynne last night. I've got to say I think the fair board has done outstanding job this year, especially given the circumstances and media pressure to cancel the fair altogether. The entertainment lineup is one of the best I've seen and there was nice selection of different food options. Didn't explore the midway as it's not really my thing but it appeared there was a nice variety of rides too. Looking forward to Newsboys Saturday, hopefully the weather holds out.
Anyone recognize/missing this? Assuming it came from fair traffic, on the edge of the street today (8/3).
Is Bridge Ave. still under construction? What's the best way to come to the Fair (coming from the north)?
Hello, I’m an owner of a trucking company. Due to a mixup between buyer and seller, we have 48 cases of perfect organic bananas to DONATE. Our truck is currently parked at 77747 209th st, Albert Lea, MN 56007. Come and get as many cases as you want. Also, if anyone have contacts with local food donation services, please forward this message. Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks In addition, I would like to make one company famous. While so many people have no food on their tables, CLN Logistics in Midlothian, TX told us to dump 2000lbs of fresh organic food.
Who are the preformers this year?
Will there be live entertainment at The Grandstand?
When can we get tickets for the grandstand on Midwesttix
