Let’s go to the fair

OPINION — The Butte/Lawrence County Fairgrounds has been hosting their 4-H fair for one hundred years and continues to live by the 4-H motto of making “The Best Better”. The beginning of the fairgrounds takes us back to the year, 1920 on Monday, April 5 where a meeting took place to create an agricultural fair. As a result, Butte County took action by purchasing 40 acres of land west of Nisland along the Belle Fourche River. With financial support from the Butte County Commissioners and the architectural creativity from Earl Wilson, the Butte County Fair was underway. The first fair took place September 27, 28, and 29, 1921. About fifty-eight years later Lawrence County, after holding their fair at Spearfish City Park, joined Butte County to create the fair that we all know and love today: The Butte/Lawrence County Fair. The combined county fair has been going strong ever since. There have only been eight years the fair has had to be cancelled due to hail storms, The Great Depression, funding issues, wartime, polio outbreak, and the COVID-19 virus. But through it all the Butte/Lawrence County Fair has prevailed and will be in full swing this year on July 26-31.
