Murray County Fair has gained the notoriety of being a local fair that offers attractions for all ages! Honoring agriculture’s origins, the Murray County Agricultural Society has planned a variety of events that will appeal to anyone who has any ties to agriculture.

The Annual Antique Tractor and Small Engine Display is scheduled for August 14 - 18th. The show this year is being held in memory of former Murray County Commissioner Bill Sauer (deceased). Sauer was well-known for his love of tractors and the hard work that he always did to ensure a high-quality county fair.

A threshing and field demonstration area has been added to the Murray County Fair this year. Organizers are seeking displays of vintage equipment to demonstrate how work was done in days-gone-by.

The display will be at the Ernie Engelkes farm just south of Slayton on US Highway 59.

Beginning at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, August 14th, the public is invited to view the tractor display at the Engelkes Farm. The tractor display will continue until Sunday afternoon, August 18th. Something new for this year is that local implement dealers will be displaying today’s modern equipment right next to the older equipment.

Starting at 1 p.m. on Sunday, August 18th will be the threshing, plowing and field demonstrations. Horse teams are welcome to be a part of Sunday’s activities.

For more information, and to register your tractor for the show, contact Ronda Radke at 507-836-1149, or email at rradke@co.murrayman.us.
