From the earliest beginnings 100 years ago the Inter-State Fair has been a family tradition for residents of southeast Kansas and northeast Oklahoma. Multiple generations have participated in the fair as exhibitors, spectators and workers. The fair schedule includes activities each and every day that are designed for family entertainment. There are agricultural exhibits, a bake sale, carnival rides on the fairway, mutton bustin and a stick rodeo for the very young, livestock judging, fine arts exhibits, a parade, a tractor pull, lawn mower races, a fair ground feed and the Inter-State Fair royalty contest. And lets not forget the ever popular demolition derby, country and western music show and four-nights of fantastic PRCA rodeo!
