Keith County Fair & Ogallala Round-Up Rodeo

Experience an old-fashioned county fair in Keith County with all the fun you remember!   See www.keithcountyfair.com for the complete schedule.

Fair Week 2021 kicks off with the Ogallala Round-Up Rodeo Saturday, July 31 at 7:30 p.m. & Sunday, August 1 at 7:00 p.m.   The annual rodeo  dates back as early as 1916, but Ogallala’s history is rooted in the open range cattle drive days of the 1870s as depicted in “Lonesome Dove.” And where there are cowboys, there are always exhibitions of rodeo skill!

Mutton bustin’ for the kids starts with registration at 6:00 p.m. both nights of the rodeo.

The Keith County Fair & Rodeo Parade will be held Sunday, August 1 at 2:30 p.m. down North Spruce Street in downtown Ogallala. Another great event for the kids as parade entrants pass out treats.

There will be a carnival at the 2021 Keith County Fair!

South Dakota-based Mac’s Carnival and Attractions will be at the fairgrounds August 5-7 (Thursday through Saturday) beginning at 6:00 p.m.
