The Steuben County Fair is the oldest continually running fair in the United States. Originated in 1819 there were 9 categories for judging with prizes given to exhibitors of cattle, sheep and produce. Horse racing was also an attraction.
The original grandstand was built in 1872 followed by a second grandstand which burned in 1966.
A wonderful example of time gone by, the Steuben County Fair has a grand history of agricultural life from our region.
Please visit our many historical landmarks including a one room schoolhouse, memorial pioneer/log cabin museum and large antique farm equipment and engine display.
