Yuma County Fair Fall Fest

1st Annual Yuma County Fair Fall Fest

OCTOBER 13-16, 2022

We officially hosted our 2022 Yuma County Fair Fall Fest and it was a success!  First and foremost we want thank you, Yuma and surrounding communities, that's right, without your support, the 2022 Fair Fall Fest wouldn't be possible.  We, here at the Yuma County Fair, want to bring more safe and affordable entertainment to our Yuma County and surrounding communities.  The 2021 Inaugural Fair Fall Fest was such a success that we've decided to continue with the 1st Annual Fair Fall Fest in October 2022 and it was simply amazing!  If you missed it, we hope to see you next October, 2023.  

This year's fall fest featured great live music from local and out of town bands, local and carnival food, strolling acts, commercial vendors, the carnival, family friendly activities, kiddie rides and the thrill of the Demolition Derby!  

The 2022 Yuma County Fair Fall Fest also featured selfie stations that were available to everyone at no additional cost!  Here are a few photos...we hope you enjoyed taking your selfies!   


The Demolition Derby contest was filled with skilled drivers until only one remained!  Congratulations to this year's winners!


It wasn't only our attendants that had a great time at the selfie stations or attending the Demolition Derby.  Our commercial vendors came together to take a great photo and share it with us!  Thank you. 



Thank you, 2022 Fair Fall Fest Sponsors!

Yuma County Fair Scholarship

We, here at the Yuma County Fair, advocate for the pursuit of higher learning and the education of our future generations. Promoting local students has been one of our main objectives of the Yuma County Fair ever since its inception. Every year, we have the Yuma County Fair Scholarship which awards a total of $20,000 to the selected youths to further their education at numerous colleges and universities.

The Yuma County Fair understands how financially difficult these troubling times have been for the Yuma community. With the cancelation of the 68th Annual Yuma County Fair, the Yuma Fairgrounds has received a significant financial loss as many other organizations and businesses in Yuma have. With this being said, we still hold the Yuma community as our main priority and concern. The Scholarship Committee, Yuma Fair Board of Directors, Yuma Fair Commissioners, and Yuma County Fair Inc staff have decided to honor our scholarship pledge to the community and its students. This year we received an extraordinary amount of applications for our scholarship program. We had 55 community students apply and all will be awarded a scholarship to financially support their pursuit of higher learning. The pledged amount for scholarships will exceed the $ 20,000.00 budgeted, but we are pulling together to support the community and our future generation.

Supporting our community and our youth, in this concerning time, is and always will be one of our utmost priorities. The Yuma County Fair would like to thank our entire community for the support we have received, and we will keep supporting Yuma for many years to come.

Congratulations to the 2020 Yuma County Fair Scholarship:
