Since 1871, the Washington County Fair has been a highlight of summer in the St. Croix Valley. Although its focus has shifted from agriculture as Washington County’s demographics have changed, the fair still draws more than 50,000 people each year. The 2015 events are too numerous to list, but highlights include Swinetime Pig Races, a Pick-up See-Saw Artist, carnival, horse shows, a vintage baseball game and talent shows.
