Spur Up Some Fun
Welcome to the 2016 Navajo County Fair!
The Navajo County Fair, Inc. will be celebrating the 85th Anniversary of the Navajo County Fair & Rodeo. The first Navajo County Fair was held in Taylor, Az. in 1926. In 1931 the County Supervisors decided to move the county fair to Holbrook due to it being the county seat and its central location in the county. The fairgrounds and other facilities were built as a permanent location for the county fair and other events. Since that time there has never been a year without a fair.
There have been a few changes. The Navajo County Fair and Fairgrounds are now supported by the Navajo County Board of Supervisors, maintained by the Navajo County Buildings & Grounds department and controlled by the Navajo County Fair, Inc. It is the 21-member board of directors of Navajo County Fair, Inc. and a core of volunteers and sponsors who make the Navajo County Fair a success.
Navajo County Fair, Inc. takes great pride in maintaining a traditional down home county fair and it is their hope that everyone in Navajo County and the surrounding communities will come and enjoy the food, fun, entertainment, exhibits and carnival, along with new events.
We are proud to announce EMERSON DRIVE will be performing on Saturday night! Branch & Dean will be their opening act. We will also have live music from Moonshine Mafia and Harry Luge.
