Western Montana Fair – Saturday – New Carnival + Missoula Stampede PRCA Rodeo [SPONSORED]

If you haven’t visited this year’s fair yet, you are missing out on a marvelous carnival! This is a new carnival the fair was brought in from Billings. The rides are new, clean and safe. It’s very obvious that the carnival staff are truly enjoying their work. Honestly, we have had so much fun this week at the fair!

  • The “Country Fair,” which includes the petting zoo and pony rides, is 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
