January 17-27, 2013

The first DeSoto County Fair was held in 1953. It was started by a group of civic-minded citizens who saw a need to show the many agricultural products grown in the county. The county fair has been an annual event for the last 58 years.

A lot of hard work goes into the fair each year. The directors and members of the DeSoto County Fair Association are all non-paid, civic-minded people who devote a great deal of time and labor into putting on a great event for the citizens of DeSoto County and surrounding areas to enjoy.

The fair offers something for everyone. There are exhibit booths, livestock shows and sales, beauty pageants for all age groups, music, bull ride shows, rides on the midway and food! Just the smell of the cotton candy, hamburgers, corn dogs and sausages. And for dessert, ice cream and strawberry shortcake. It makes one want to sample everything at the fair!
