Swift County’s 118th annual fair gets underway Wednesday and continues through Sunday at the Swift County Fairgrounds in Appleton.
The fair features quality, free entertainment each day, 4-H competitions, a Ranch Rodeo, and a carnival with games and rides. See the full schedule of events at the end of this article.
The campaign for construction of new bathrooms and a shower facility at the Swift County Fair will be launched this week, fair President Jon Panzer said Monday. The current bathrooms at the fair are from around the 1940s.
The fair board is trying to raise $200,000 to replace the aging bathroom facilities and add bathroom and shower facilities at the campgrounds.
