The Platte County Fair is a privately held, not-for-profit organization. It
consists of 100 stockholders including 15 board members with 5 officers
that are elected annually by the
stockholders, all of whom are non-paid volunteers. The fair has been an
annual event in our community since the first fair in 1863. It is recorded as being the oldest continuously operating fair west of the Mississippi River. The
fair draws participants and spectators from a 100-mile radius, and in some
cases even further.
The longevity and future existence of this event is not based on a tax burden
to the local citizens of Platte County, the state of Missouri or the Federal
Government. This organization receives NO financial support or funding from any
governmental body. The fair is entirely supported by revenue generated at the
event through gate receipts, concessions and sponsorship.
It is the goal of the Platte County Fair Board to continually improve the fair
in an effort to the demands of our rapidly growing and changing
We welcome your input. This is your opportunity to play a part in our future
improvement! Feel free to either mail us your comments.
