Stretching back many eventful years in Gogebic County history, the annual Gogebic County Fair remains a central marking-stone in the cultural life of the U.P. Each year the Fair brings the award hopes and dreams of 4-H’ers that their carefully raised animal will win the coveted Blue Ribbon! But beyond the moos and quacks of the animal building, the Fair boasts a wide variety of entire-family entertainment and interest displays: musical performances, harness racing, a traditional collection of rides and games, various open-entry contests, and exhibits of all kinds. Come spend a day (or several!) at the fair. Go to their website and get the full schedule! Follow them on FB! The Gogebic County Fairgrounds are very conveneiently located on U.S. 2 at the western edge of Ironwood: watch for the big signs! The 2021 Fair will be August 12 through August 15th. See you there!!
