Time to relax and bring the whole family to the 80th Annual Marion Fair, June 19-22 at the Marion Fairgrounds/Veterans Memorial Park.

This years Marion Fair will be better than ever. In addition to traditional events like livestock competition and the ever-popular carnival midway by Schmidt Amusements the 2019 fair features more exciting events in front of the grandstand and on the midway.
