The Big Sky Country State Fair is Shaping Up to Be Incredibly Fun

Being new in town (and by new, I mean like less than a week), I can’t tell you how excited I am about the Big Sky Country State Fair that kicks off this week!  Growing up in the town that hosts a state fair meant corn dogs, carnivals, and concerts. It also meant meeting up with and hanging out with my friends.

Some of my best childhood memories were at the fair.

This is why I can’t wait to make new memories this year at the 2021 Big Sky Country State Fair that runs at the Gallatin Country Fairgrounds from Wednesday, July 21st through Sunday, July 25th.

No matter what your pleasure, you are sure to find something you enjoy at this year’s fair.  From all the fun at the carnival, including a brand new ride that is the only one of its kind, to one of the many high quality free shows, there really is something for everyone.

Taking a look at the schedule of events, you can plan out your day and literally have fun for 12 hours, each day. From 4-H to dancing, hip hop to country, this year’s fair will be a return to normal. But we can’t forget the food. As a qualified fair food fanatic, I can tell you that you will not be disappointed when it comes to all of those deep-fried delicacies.

I try to pace myself, or else I end up with a gut ache and eating a half a package of Tums, but you can bet I will partake.
