Stark County Junior Fair was established in May 1956. The livestock shows were held at the Smith sale barn, southeast of Wyoming, Illinois while the non livestock projects were judged at the Wyoming High School. The property was acquired from the CB & Q railroad. Around 1978 the current show barn was constructed. The building that houses the restrooms, office, and concession stand was donated by the Gene Gill Family. Our fair runs over a four day period the last weekend in July.
