Adams – The fun has begun at the Adams Agricultural Fair.
The fair gates opened at 5 p.m. Aug. 5 and Friday night events included a truck pull, a children’s pedal-tractor pull, and live music performed by the band “Just’ n Kase.”

Saturday's events launched during the morning with tractor, horse, and pony pulls. The “Llamas on Parade” have paraded, Karen’s School of Dance dancers have danced, but there’s still a host of events planned for the fair's final eight hours.

Shows and Special Events


Children are enjoying this "slide-with-a-twist."
Today's demolition derby is set to fire up at 2 p.m., but don't wait for the smash-and-crash to come to the fair; the gates open at 9 a.m. and morning events include a portable sawmill demonstration, judging of youth cattle, sheep, and goats, and a 10 a.m. "Woof and Wag" dog show. An oxen pull is slated for 11 a.m., and sheep dog demonstrations are scheduled for 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m..

Saturday performances included the Adams Turners, Walt Williams and “Mrs. Moose," who entertained with a children’s performance, and a three-hour evening concert from the band “Minor Setback." A 9:30 p.m. fireworks show brought color to the sky.

These tiny "Karen's School of Dance" dancers captivated an Aug. 6 noontime audience.


Numerous food vendors selling standard fair fare such as fried dough, French fries, and burgers and hot dogs have set up along a mid-way. Craft and merchant booths surround the fair perimeter, and the fully-enclosed exhibit hall provides respite from the sun and a chance to inspect the skills of area growers, sewers, and more.

Fun, Games, and Chainsaws

“Coyote Keith,” also known as Keith Randall, is performing chainsaw art throughout the fair, and the West Mountain Farms llamas are scheduled to be at the fairgrounds today. A climbing wall, bouncy-bounce, and gravity-defying

Pony and horse pulls were featured Aug. 6 fair events.
children’s slide are set up and providing entertainment to young fair fans. Ponies owned by “Party Ponies” are saddled up and ready to carry riders around a corral.

The Adams Agricultural Fair is at Bowe Field, just past Racine’s sugar-and-butter corn stand on Old Columbia Street. Signs situated along Route 8 [Howland Avenue] near the Goodwill Store point the way to the fair. Parking is available at the fairgrounds. Admission is $5 per adult and $1 per child.
