‘Stirrup Some Fun’ at the Yakima Valley Fair & Rodeo

Community members are invited to visit the fair free of charge. Rodeo tickets may be purchased for $20 for adults 16 and older, and $10 for youth ages 6-15 and all livestock exhibitors.

GRANDVIEW — The much-anticipated Yakima Valley Fair and Rodeo is returning to Country Fair Park on Wednesday, August 11 and runs through Saturday, August 14, 2021.

“We understand that there has been some confusion, partly due to the recent announcement by the Grandview Chamber of Commerce about the parade being cancelled,” said Kathy Thonney, YVFR Treasurer. “We want to let the Lower Valley communities know that the Fair and Rodeo are indeed happening.”

The fair opens at 8 a.m. each morning and closes at 11 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday nights, and midnight on Friday and Saturday night.

“We are excited to be back this year, with a Youth Livestock Show & Sale, Team Penning and a Badlandz concert,” Thonney said. “The PRCA Rodeo on Friday and Saturday nights should be great entertainment! Plan to come join the fun.”

Community members are invited to visit the fair free of charge. Rodeo tickets may be purchased for $20 for adults 16 and older, and $10 for youth ages 6-15 and all livestock exhibitors.
