The Richland County Agricultural Society was organized May 15, 1857. One of its objectives was to improve the character and operation of agricultural, mechanical and household arts. In order to achieve that objective, in October 1857 the Agricultural Society sponsored a “cattle show and fair” at Thompson’s Hall on Main Street. That exhibition proved such a popular success the society sponsored a fair for 100 years. The 1858-1860 and 1866-1868 fairs were held on the Courthouse Square. The fairs weren't held from 1861 through 1865 because of the Civil War. Revived in 1866, by 1868 the fair had grown to overflow the space by the courthouse. So the society decided to purchase a fairground. The 1869 fair was held on 4 acres purchased for $400 from Caleb and Nancy Waggoner. The 2019 fair will be held Sept. 4-8 at the Richland County Fairgrounds, 23630 County Highway AA, Richland Center, Wisconsin. Visit fair.co.richland.wi.us for more information.
