The Missouri State Fair
Few things can beat the fun of a state fair! With loads of livestock, games, rides and deep-fried delicacies (think funnel cakes), there’s something for everyone. The Missouri State Fair has been around since 1901, and it never disappoints, offering fun for the whole family. Check out all the fairground attractions—the competitions, the midway and the all-star entertainment lineup including Montgomery Gentry, Hank Williams Jr., Whiskey Myers and RaeLynn. $10 adults, $7 seniors, $2 children 6 to 12, free for 5 and under.
