Kids age 5 years old and older are encouraged to take a stroll to the country at the Marion County Fair. Come on down to the farm and shell your own corn!

Merry-go-round rides will also be available. These hands-on activities will be available from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. with no admission fee. So, come on out and enjoy a day at the Marion County Fair!
