The grand pass is on sale now at Godfather's Pizza in Austin, Albert Lea, Owatonna, and Rochester. Fairgoers can use the six Grand Pass tickets in any way they choose, one at a time, all at one time, or any combination in between. They are good for any of the six grandstand events!

Fair week will kick off at noon on Tuesday, August 10, with opening ceremonies at fair square. There will be free entertainment all week long including fireworks, livestock shows, 4-H and FFA displays, an eagle show and turkey calling contest, a vehicle fair including a scheduled visit from a US military Blackhawk helicopter, and Cannonball Smith returns to be shot out of a cannon at the Mower County Fair!

The grandstand will include motocross, demo derbies, a new bull riding company, a combine demo derby, and NTPA tractor and truck pulls.
