On Thursday, June 20 - 22, the 61st Annual McKenzie County Fair will be held at the fairgrounds in Watford City.
“We have a fair in Watford City once a year, so I think this is something that the children really look forward to,” says Janel Lee of the McKenzie County Fair Board.
Compared to years prior, the McKenzie County Fair is happening a bit earlier this year.
“It’s been quite a few years since we’ve had it in June. It’s usually held in July,” says Lee. “We changed dates so that we would be able to accommodate the carnival.”
With the change in the county fair dates, one of Watford City’s most popular events, Homefest is also changing dates.
