The annual Rodeo at the fair is always a big draw. This year's rodeo is scheduled for 6pm on October 25th and 26th. You'll see bareback and saddle bronc riding, bull riding, team roping, barrel racing, steer wrestling, and more. The action and excitement of the rodeo never fails to fill up the arena grandstand.
Another traditional aspect of the fair is the annual Agriculture and Livestock Show found in the Grounds' barn. Come get an up close and personal look at the farm side of the farm-to table movement. 2,000-lb. cattle, award-winning hogs, hand-raised chickens, and much more.
If you like amusement rides, you'll love the Greater Gulf State Fair Midway. The fair has some of the biggest and best new and classic adult amusement rides. The kiddos have their own section, so you can enjoy all the thrill you can stomach. Right on!
Speaking of your stomach, it will enjoy itself, as well. The fair Chomping Grounds feature 20 different local food vendors offering up one of the widest selections of amazing food options you'll ever see. Everything from hot dogs and bbq turkey legs to gator on a stick and rattlesnake sausage.
If shopping is more your speed than amusement rides and rodeos, don't despair. The fair is also home to the annual Marketplace, where you'll find a wide selection of both unique handmade crafts and retail items. Browse the diverse offerings and maybe even get some early holiday shopping done!
