Bishop, California Tri-County Fair | Labor Day Weekend

Every Labor Day Weekend, the fair rolls into town. Butler Amusements has been providing the Carnival Midway for the Tri-County Fair for over 15 years. They provide a wide variety of major, family and kid-friendly rides, fun Midway games and a clean and professional presentation for our guests. Come out and enjoy the thrills and fun of the midway at the Tri-County Fair!

The 2019 Tri-County Fair Board of Directors is excited to welcome each of you to our “Summer Nights & Carnival Lights”. The Eastern Sierra Tri-County Fair is guaranteed to be the BEST FOUR DAYS OF SUMMER. It’s a time to showcase and celebrate the talents and achievements of our local communities. Entering projects in the Fair Exhibits Competition allows you the opportunity to showcase your efforts and creative talents. We encourage all talents and all ages to enter one project this year!

We have developed new many new classes and also brought back the popular Beer and Wine Competition. You also don’t want to miss the bigger and better BBQ Competition in the Party Barn. We’ve worked hard to bring in new food, new vendors and new entertainment to bring in more visitors.

We’re expecting more than 25,000 visitors this year. Your work is a very important part of the Fair’s celebration and we look forward to placing your talent on display.
