MO State Fair preparing for state bicentennial
The director of the Missouri State Fair says the event will be back to full strength to celebrate the state’s bicentennial.
Mark Wolfe tells Brownfield the fair staff is putting together a line-up of traveling exhibits and some things people might not have seen before to highlight the special year.
“We’re always working on that ‘wow’ factor,” he said. “What can we do that gets people’s attention, you know, that makes them look at things go ‘wow that was really neat, I’d like to go back and see that’. Something that you see at the fair that you might not get to see somewhere else.”
Wolfe said he expects several new fairgoers from every part of the state.
“We’re fully expecting record setting crowds,” he said. “I think people want to get out and we’re working hard to make sure when they get here that there’s a great program for them when they do get here.”
Wolfe said he would also not be surprised to see a record number of livestock entries at this year’s fair. The 2021 Missouri State Fair will be held from August 12th through the 22nd in Sedalia.
