Each July, over 200 4-H and FFA members enter their exhibits at the Tama County Fair. Ribbons and trophies are earned. Even more important, goals are met, lessons are learned and friendships are made.

The Tama County Livestock and Fair Association invites you to come to the Tama County Fair this July 16-21, in Gladbrook.

This year, the fair has changed the show schedule. Please notice the changes:

Monday, July 16 Non-Livestock judging for 4-H members, FFA students and Clover Kids

Tuesday, July 17 Animals are entered, Pet Show, Dog Show and Opening Ceremony of the Fair which includes the Selection of the Tama County Fair Queen

Thursday, July 19 Dairy Show, Horse Show (Speed Events), Rabbit Show, Communications Event and Livestock Judging Contest

Friday, July 20 Swine Show, Horse Show, Pee Wee Wranglers

Each day is full of Kid's Crafts, activities and time to tour the exhibit buildings. The Tama County Soil and Water Conservation will be sponsoring a watermelon feed on Friday along with the Conservation Station visiting.
