The Siskiyou County Fair began as an agricultural show in 1859 in Fort Jones, moved to Yreka in 1867 and became the 10th District Agricultural Association in 1926, at the current location on Fairlane Rd. The 10th D.A.A. hosted the Siskiyou County Fair until 1952 when a second fair was established in Siskiyou County, the Tulelake-Butte Valley Fair. The name was changed at that time to the “Siskiyou County Fair and Paul Bunyan Festival.” In 1972, the current name “The Siskiyou Golden Fair” was selected by the Board of Directors and that name is still used today. For 158 years, our traditions, heritage, culture and history have been on display through our many and varied exhibits, contests and entertainment opportunities. Join us August 9-13, 2017 in Yreka as we celebrate “Pioneer Days to Modern Ways”.
