Highlights of the 2018 Cass County Fair

Going into its TWENTY-FIFTH successful year, the Cass County Fair has become an entertainment tradition. From the youth livestock shows to the action-packed demolition derby, the fair has it all. The Cass County 4-H Youth Fair will be back again this year, celebrating 115 years of service to the young people of this nation. Again our Carnival is Evans Midland Empire Shows, Inc. One new addition this year is a Swine Show on Wed. July 11 at 8am. Whether it is the County’s Blue-grass Bands that interests you or exciting rodeo action, The Cass County Fair is sure to be an entertainment delight for young and old alike.

The Queen Pageant is a pre-fair event and will be held at 7:00 pm on Saturday, July 7, 2018 at the Pleasant Hill High School. (sponsored by Harrisonville Business Women of Missouri & Community Bank of Pleasant Hill) (Sash donated by Gwen Fulton)
