Find Out About Walla Walla Fair and Frontier Days
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 may look different, but the focus on community and fun is the same!
The Best Walla Walla Frontier Day Events
The biggest highlight of Frontier Days is the three-day rodeo. This year, it’ll take place on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night. The Friday night rodeo is held in honor of all the lives that have been touched by breast cancer, so be sure to wear pink! On Saturday, the Rodeo will honor present and past rodeo legends. Finally, on Sunday, the rodeo will honor the military branches.
Another highlight of Frontier Days is the parade. This year the parade will take place on Saturday, August 31, at 10 a.m. In past years, there have been over 100 entries to the rodeo. These include floats, mounted groups, bands, antique cars, marching bands, horse-drawn wagons, clowns, and so much more! There will also be a kid’s parade, which begins one hour earlier.
Finally, be sure to check out the Demolition Derby for a real thrill! This event sells out each year, so you’ll want to grab your tickets early. If you’re a fan of monster trucks or creative ways to destroy cars, you won’t want to miss this. Check out the Walla Walla Fairgrounds calendar for a full list of events!
