River City Weekend loves everything about our local county fairs with all the food, 4H, and all the activities! We asked life long 4Her to name some of the hidden gems of the Vanderburgh County Fair. And voilà!
Here are four hidden gems to see at the 199th Vanderburgh County Fair.

Bring your kiddos and maybe even a few of their friends to enjoy the fair at an event just for them! The Kid’s Corner is an oasis amongst the hustle and bustle of the fair to make crafts and do other activities. This is a great time for mom and dad to take a break from the heat and crowds, too.

Be sure to stop by in the evenings for nightly magic shows at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.

Kid’s Corner is open daily at varying times.
