elcome to an exciting new season here with the Ouachita County Fair. 2019 is a year full of exciting new changes, a year of transition as we leave the fairgrounds where our fair has served the community of Camden and the surrounding area for almost 70 years and now we are looking toward to developing our new site. During this gap year we will have our annual Fair at the Ouachita County Recreational Center on Mt. Holly Rd. If you would like to be a part of the excitement and new building projects for 2020 please message us through our Facebook page. We are sure we can find the perfect job for you.

This September join us at the Ouachita County Recreational Center to support the youth of our community who are involved in 4-H and FFA programs. We will have all the things you love and expect from our county fair. Rabbits. Chickens. Goats. Hogs. Carnival Rides. Cotton Candy. Plus there will be exhibits showcasing all our local talent, everything from preserved fruits and vegetables, baked items, hand crafted quilts, crafts, photography, and much, much more. If you have a hobby, be sure and check out the Fair Book (found at the bottom of this page), we’re guessing you can find a category that fits your special talents. We look forward to seeing you in September.
