It’s time for carnival rides, games, livestock shows, bull riding, funnel cakes, and displays of quilts, preserves & garden vegetables and more in Fayetteville, everyone.

Of course, we’re talking about the Washington County Fair, which is underway now through Aug. 24 at the fairgrounds (2536 N. McConnell Ave) in Fayetteville.

The state’s largest county fair provides 4-H and FFA youth and county residents with an annual showcase for their talents, whether they are raising rabbits, canning spaghetti sauce, quilting or painting with watercolors.

It’s also home to the annual carnival, a petting zoo, rodeo events, and tons more.

Admission is $5 per person (ages 6 and up), and armbands for the carnival are $25. Gates to the fairgrounds open every day at 10 a.m., and the midway (featuring the carnival rides and games) opens daily at 5 p.m. Tuesday-Friday, and at noon on Saturday. The petting zoo is open Tuesday-Saturday from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m.

New this year, you can avoid the lines at the gate, and purchase admission and armbands online in advance at
