JULY 20-25, 2020

Once again, on July 20-25, 2020, the fairgrounds in Sedan, Kansas will be home to the Chautauqua County Fair. Located on Park Avenue in the northwest part of Sedan, the County Fair has something for everyone. People of all ages will enjoy some good clean entertainment, eat first-rate food prepared by local cooks, and view some great exhibits. The fairgrounds are shady, the people are friendly, and best of all – the fair is free!

It just wouldn't be a fair without a little friendly rivalry between the exhibitors. 4-H’ers and open class exhibitors vie for the grand champion ribbons as they show off their best projects: fashion and flowers, antiques and artwork, crafts and clothing, and of course, some of the best livestock in the State are on exhibit.

This is good old-fashioned fun at a good old-fashioned fair. Mark your calendar now, and plan to have a great time with your family and friends at the Chautauqua County Fair!

2020 Forms are available!
