Each August since 1867, this fair has provided a venue for rural and urban folks to mingle. Held August 11-15 this year, the Brown County Fair will bring back the memories associated with an old-fashioned county fair. Highlights include a traditional carnival; a variety of free entertainment; livestock, produce, craft and 4-H exhibits; auto and combine demolition derbies; and a truck and tractor pull. This year, the popular Minnesota Gladiolus Society will return with an awesome flower display.
