About This Event
Every Labor Day Weekend, the fair rolls into town. The Eastern Sierra Tri-County Fair is guaranteed to be the BEST FOUR DAYS OF SUMMER. We worked hard to bring in new food, new vendors and new entertainment to bring in more visitors. The fair was a tremendous success in 2019 and we look forward to more fun, thrills and excitement in 2020.
