Welcome to the website for the Oldest County Fair in Oregon. The first fair in Yamhill County was October 7, 1854, and was held in Lafayette, Oregon. It was sponsored by the Yamhill County Agricultural Society, which formed in 1853. That first fair included bed quilts, butter, cheese, vegetables, cattle, sheep, hogs, farm implements, horses, mules and so much more.


Over the years there were many changes to the county fair location and facilities. The current site was acquired by parcels over several years and buildings were added. Our current location, just off of Highway 99W on Lafayette Avenue, is on 30 acres with housing for exhibits and animals as well as a show arena open year-round for shows and youth events.

We are in the center of Yamhill County in the heart of wine country. Our facilities host the Yamhill County Fair and Rodeo each year as well as a variety of events throughout the year to include trade shows, conferences, parties, weddings, banquets, horse shows, and dog shows. Our grounds feature facilities and locations for outdoor and indoor events of all types.
