Our Story

“Hundreds of thousands of people have enjoyed the Saginaw County Fair since its first agricultural four-day fair in 1914. During its heyday the eight-day fair was the “largest county fair in America, east of the Rockies.” Then, declining attendance almost brought the demise to the downsized four-day fair. But a dedicated corps of volunteers renovated the century-old fair into a renewed Chesaning agricultural exhibition.” Ederer, R.(2013). A Family Fun Affair – Celebrating 100 Saginaw County Fairs, 1914 to 2013

The Saginaw County Fair has been a family tradition for generations, and we are proud to offer a complete historical book celebrating 100 Saginaw County Fairs 1914-2013. For $15, a copy can be yours. Contact the Fair Office for more information.
