The Fairboard Welcomes You

2023 Fairboard

2023 Klickitat County Fairboard

The Klickitat County Fairboard welcomes you! 

We would like to welcome everyone to the Klickitat County Fair & Rodeo.
It is the desire of the Board of Directors of the Fair and all departments and committee volunteers to provide you, the exhibitors and guests, an educational and enjoyable time at the fair. If you have not exhibited at the fair in the past, we would encourage you to do so this year. You will find it very educational and rewarding.

Our goal is to provide a well-rounded number of exhibit opportunities. It also is our desire to provide educational, as well as entertaining, exhibits and displays.

We would like to extend a special thank you to all the superintendents, committee chairpersons and volunteers who make the Klickitat County Fair & Rodeo possible. Without all these special volunteers, our fair would not be able to continue to grow to be one of the best events in Klickitat County year after year.

We personally would like to invite everyone to take part in the competitions, exhibits, and activities of the Klickitat County Fair & Rodeo.
