elcome to the 2017 Ouachita County Fair! We are proud to announce that we are bringing back Merriam’s Midway Shows. Todd and his crew brought a great carnival to our fair a few years ago. They are coming back and bringing more rides for all ages.
The 4-H and FFA livestock projects in the barns are results of hard working youth from around our county. The public always exhibits their hard work of making quilts, preserving fruits and vegetables, taking pictures and crafts at the fair. It’s exciting to see the hard work pay off with some ribbons and a little point money for their efforts.
