About the Fair: The 2024 Washington Town & Country Fair will be held August 7-11 in Washington, Missouri. At the WashMO Fair, gate admission covers everything but food/drink and games of chance, so plan to spend the whole day at the fair soaking up the fun. The midway features over 20 rides. The Family Fun Center has a jam-packed schedule of stage shows, contests, and interactive fun, while Agriland brings the farm to kids with a petting zoo, combine cab, and corn, soybean, and wheat-filled sandboxes. All interactive exhibits have plenty of seating for the adults to rest up while the kids play. The fun kicks into overdrive in the evening with the motorsports events and concerts (line-ups to be announced in March). Did we mention the concerts are included with your admission? Whatever fun you are looking for, you are sure to find it August 7-11, 2024 at the Washington Town & Country Fair. It’s a great deal close to home – season tickets or daily passes are available, and children under 6 are completely free!
