Fremont County Fair has always provided an opportunity for youth to display their talents and accomplishments in a public arena.
Over the years the fair grew and organizers added open and golden age divisions to allow adults to participate. Now, exhibits include 4-H projects, fine arts, quilts, needle work, leather crafts, wood work and more.
