Mid-West Fairs

1 of 1
Mid-West Fairs began its life in the early 1920’s as the Middle-West Fair Circuit. Having neither charter nor bylaws, a small group of ten fairs banded together for the express purpose of creating a low budget travel plan for livestock exhibitors who wished to move animals from one Midwest fair to another between mid-August and mid-November.
The Middle-West Fair Circuit came into existence so that ten fairs, some small, somewhat weak and located a little off the main road, might create a strong, unified, predictable route for exhibitors who, in turn, would be pleased and encouraged by the opportunity to travel economically from one blue ribbon show to another. Later, this same philosophy worked for member fairs as they sought to route carnival attractions, vaudeville shows, fireworks companies and auto racing promoters.
