The Ozark Empire Fair In Missouri Is Back For Its 85th Year Of Fun & Festivities

Summertime’s all about traditions – hanging out in the stands and cheering on our favorite baseball teams, lounging on sandy beaches, and chasing down ice cream trucks for a cool treat. Annual fairs and festivals also play a big role in our summers, and the Ozark Empire Fair in Missouri is no exception. It returns for its 85th year this summer.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
