Buchanan County Fair Week

It’s been a busy week so far at the Buchanan County Fair in Independence.

Fair Board Association Vice President Matt Walthart says it got off to a warm and muggy start Wednesday. Since then, they’ve had stock car races, the annual pie auction, the FFA/Farm Bureau tenderloin supper and the tractor pull.

You can enjoy the free carnival rides and ground acts heading into the weekend. And the Buchanan County Fair is gearing up for a big crowd for the Lee Brice country concert on Saturday night.

And you can catch the 4-H/FFA livestock shows in the show ring – one of several facility improvements that have been made at the Buchanan County Fairgrounds.
