Find Out About Walla Walla Fair and Frontier Days 2017
The Walla Walla County Fair began in 1866 and has since been renamed and rebranded dozens of times before becoming the fair known as “Frontier Days” that we love. It also moved from the horse racing grounds to the Walla Walla County Fairgrounds. The Walla Walla County Fair 2017 may look different, but the focus on community and fun is the same!
The Best Frontier Day Events
One of the must-see events at Frontier Days is the rodeo on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night. If you plan on attending the Friday show, make sure to dress in pink in support of the “Tough Enough to Wear Pink” campaign that promotes breast cancer awareness. The Saturday show celebrates rodeo legends, honoring the exceptional cowboys and cowgirls who have participated in past rodeos. The Sunday show is in salute to our troops so definitely buy your tickets now!
Fans of country music shouldn’t miss the concert on Wednesday, August 30! Josh Turner, a multi-platinum MCA Nashville superstar, will be performing with special guest Ned LeDoux.
Another highlight of Frontier Days is the parade. This year, the parade will occur on Saturday, September 2, at 10 a.m. There will be 125 entries in the parade, including floats, mounted groups, bands, antique cars, marching bands, horse-drawn wagons, clowns, and more! There will also be a kid’s parade, which begins one hour earlier.
