The Adams County Fair can trace its roots back more than one hundred years. However the fair has been an annual event for 81 years. With its long history, the fair loves to tip its hat to tradition.
While on the grounds, visitors can get a mini history lesson by checking out the exhibits hosted by the Adams County Olde Time Association. On weekends during the fair, you can take the kids to watch threshing demonstrations, chair caning, blacksmithing and spinning to name a few. Plus all the antique tractors take center stage on Saturday and Sunday at 2:30p.m. during the “Olde Time Parade.” It’s a bit of Americana in the midst of the modern country artists and big tractor pull action.

The Adams County Olde Tyme Association has served up a FREE ham and bean dinner for Sunday fairgoers for decades. Check out the displays and demonstrations, while enjoying some home cooking and a slice of homegrown watermelon on Sunday at lunchtime during the Adams County Fair.

The Adams County Olde Tyme Association also opens up the 'Lewis Round Barn' just outside the fairgrounds for visitors during the weekend of the Adams County Fair. You can tour an old log cabin, a historic one-room schoolhouse and the Round Barn itself, filled to the brim with historical artifacts.
