The West Alexander Fair is a country fair with agricultural and livestock exhibits, Fair Queen selection, tractor pulls, truck pulls, antique machinery, rodeo, chainsaw carving, live entertainment, food, entertainment, amusement rides, and more!


Fan favorites like the demolition derbies (Tuesday and Wednesday), Arena Cross (Thursday), and fireworks (Saturday) keep the whole family entertained!
