The 2021 Winneshiek County Fair is fast approaching. After taking a year off in 2020 due to the pandemic, one of the best county fairs in Iowa is back from July 13-17.

The Fair will officially kick off Tuesday, July 13, in Decorah with a night of action-packed racing at Upper Iowa Speedway for the evening’s Grandstand entertainment. Hot laps will start at 6 p.m. with racing to follow at 6:30 p.m.

On Wednesday evening (July 14), Rogue Rodeo will take to the main stage at 7 p.m.

Thursday night, July 15, the Grandstand show will be highlighted by the shear power and entertainment of the NTPA (National Tractor Pullers Association) truck and tractor pull. The first hooks are set to start at 7 p.m., with several classes of the best pullers in the entire country ready to compete.

On Friday night, Sawyer Brown Band will take to the main stage for the first night of concert entertainment. With the reputable country band set to take the stage at 9 p.m., the night will kick off with opener Joe Stamm starting at 7:30 p.m.

The final night of entertainment for the 2021 Winneshiek County Fair will feature country music stars Jordan Davis (9 p.m.) and opener Gabby Barrett (7:30 p.m.).

Over recent years, newcomer Gabby Barrett has put out several country music headliners, including “I Hope” and “The Good Ones.”
