The Siskiyou County Fair began as an agricultural show in 1859 in Fort Jones, moved to Yreka in 1867and 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 156 years, our traditions, heritage, culture and history have on display through our many and varied exhibits, contests and entertainment opportunities. Share in our showcase and enjoy “Fun for the Whole Herd” at the 2015 Siskiyou Golden Fair August 12th–16th.
The Fairgrounds are available for activities of all kinds the other 50 weeks of the year and serve as a command center for natural disasters, the base for county drive thru health clinics, wedding, family gatherings, auto racing, rodeos, ropings and horse shows.
