The Becker County Fair will be held later than usual this summer.

This year the fair had some scheduling issues with the midway or carnival portion and had do some juggling of the schedule.


“We couldn’t get the carnival; our carnival signed another (appearance) the same weekend we do ours, so we had to push it back,” said Fair Manager and President Bob Sonnenberg. Not to worry, next year the fair will be back to its traditional dates in the last week in July.
