An annual rite of summer – the St. Charles County Fair – is set to begin its run at Wentzville’s Rotary Park from July 25-29.
The fair, which features a variety of entertainment, highlights the ongoing agricultural heritage of the county, particularly young participants in 4-H Club activities.
Along with carnival rides, a demolition derby, tractor pulls, car shows and a rodeo, the fair allows 4-H club members to exhibit animals they raise. Heifers, hogs, chickens, geese, rabbits and others, along other projects are displayed and judged.
Daily admission is $10 for adults on Tuesday, July 25 through Thursday, July 27, and $20 on Friday, July 28 and Saturday, July 29. Daily admission for children, age 6-12, is $5 on Tuesday through Saturday. Admission is free for children, age 5 and under, for each day of the fair. Admission is $5 on Senior Citizens Day, Wednesday, July 26, for adults age 60 and older. Admission is also half-price for military personnel with a proper ID.
A pass for adults for the entire fair is $40; for children, age 6-12, it’s $15. The park is at 2577 Meyer Road in Wentzville. The fairgrounds open at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, July 25.
