Richland County Fair

Welcome to the Richland County Fair Picture Tour

If you are looking for an old-fashioned, family oriented County Fair you can’t beat the Richland County Fair and Rodeo in Sidney, Montana.  You will feel like Goldilocks because the size of the venue, the number of activities and the number of friendly people is, “Just Right.”  Don’t take our word for it, look at the Facebook reviews.  One post describes the fair in Sidney perfectly, they wrote: ” Very impressed, everything was fresh and the cleanest fair I’ve ever been. Will go back

For something out of the ordinary

For something out of the ordinary, go to the fair grounds early in the day to see the concessionaires and booths setup. Who knows you just might discover ranch kids practicing their roping skills (See photo below).  While at the fair, take a walk over to the Floral Hall to see the spectacular wall hangings made entirely out of seeds and legumes! We know it sounds strange but wait until you see the results of months of meticulous work required to create the colorful artwork.

Beans on the Wall

For over thirty years there has been a friendly competition between the Montana towns surrounding Sidney. Great little towns like Savage, Crane, Lambert and Fairview.  Each year they try to create the most imaginative and colorful wall hanging. The “catch” is, the display has to be made entirely out of seeds and legumes!  Here is the Savage, Montana entry.
