The Pittsburg County Free Fair is scheduled to begin with entry day of non-animal exhibits, Tuesday, September 3rd and run through Saturday, September the 7th closing the fair with the annual Rodeo.

For Pittsburg County residents who would like to try their hand at entering their creations, the open class division is for any age. Horticulture, Quilting, Knitting or Crocheting, Leisure & Cultural Arts, Fabrics & Fashions, Photography, Food Preparation, and Food Preservation are just few areas of interest. Horticulture includes house plants as well as fruits and vegetables. For the artist, we welcome paintings, metal crafts, leather crafts, bead crafts and photography. We also have categories featuring scrap booking pages and rubber stamping. Paintings, ceramics, and needlepoint are part of the competition just to name a few.
