County fair offers four days of family fun under the sun

In its 67th year

Today through Sunday, country-and-western duo Nevada Slim and Cimarron Sue will share the main stage and headline at the 67th consecutive Klickitat County Fair with the one-man interactive show that is Slightly Illusional.

The annual county fair is a four-day affair at the fairgrounds in Goldendale that--in addition to live entertainment on the midway--features kids and their critters, a kick-off barbecue, carnival rides and Western games, team penning and branding competitions, two days of professional rodeo action in the Conboy Outdoor Arena and a whole lot more.

Price of admission to the fairgrounds is $6 per day, $12 per season for adults and youth 13 and over; $5 and $10 for seniors 62 and over; and $4 and $8 for children ages 6-12. (Parking is free, and youngsters 5 and under get in free when accompanied by a paid adult.)
