Vans and buses are allowed to drop off kids at the front gate and park at one of the designed parking lots.

The fair’s theme this year is “Going Green” and The Linn County Fair Association will be handing out reusable bags for kids to carry their different items in during Youth Day. They will be available in the Morton Building while supplies last.

Also, with the support of Roberts Landscaping of Coggon the Linn County Fair Association will be giving away  100 Colorado Blue Spruce trees from the Arbor Day Foundation. Each tree comes in a recyclable tub that can easily be converted to a bird feeder for your backyard (instructions included)
