Dundy County Fair
Fair week is big in Benkelman! It's when pies and breads, cattle and sheep, quilts and fashions, and much more are studied and judged. It's a reunion week for families and friends and for those that share common bonds in the livestock barns or in the food booths. It's a rite of passage for some and just a great time for others.
Proudly honoring a tradition established in 1903, the citizens of Dundy County gather once a year in late July. Rides, games and concessions are all run by community volunteers each evening.
First Dundy County Fair. 1903.
It's a Dundy County tradition! Each July the Dundy County Chamber of Commerce hosts the much anticipated pre-fair BBQ. This year Envision Benkelman will be taking over the reins and hosting the event that celebrates an early kick-off to the fair season.
It's for a good cause! Ticket proceeds go towards Dundy County Fair and community improvements. Enjoy an evening of dining and fun to help your community!
It's a good time! Join your friends and neighbors at the Annual Pre-Fair BBQ fundraiser where locals chefs prepare you a chuckwagon style supper, in cast iron cookware over open fires.
