This year’s fair will be held August 17 - 23, 2015 and marks the sixth year of operating independent of State funding and our emergence as Michigan’s only State Fair.
The fair is now governed by the Upper Peninsula State Fair Authority with representatives from all fifteen counties in the Upper Peninsula and the Hannahville Indian Community.
Since 1928, the Upper Peninsula State Fair has provided a place for folks from across the nation to experience and celebrate the unique culture and heritage of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. The “Fair” remains as unique and wonderful as the people and places found across this marvelous peninsula.
Nowhere is the slogan “Pure Michigan” more suitable than in Escanaba during the annual Upper Peninsula State Fair. Come experience “Pure Fun, Pure Goodness, and Pure Michigan” at the Upper Peninsula State Fair - this year and every year!
