Kids Day 2016

Kids Day is a great tradition of the Brown County Free Fair. We've planned several activities that will make the day special for families, daycare providers and children of all ages. Spend the day with us on Friday, August 12,2016!

Inside the Civic Center, we're excited to showcase Balloon Artistry by Mandana! She is an international award-winning balloon artist and entertainer. She combines a fun and interactive stage show with her incredible talent and imagination. Kids and adults alike, will be amazed at her creations. Check out her website for great photos at Her show will start at 11am on the Civic Center stage. Don't worry if you miss the show – she'll be roaming the grounds from 12pm to 3pm and 4pm to 8pm, making personalized balloon sculptures for fairgoers. Like most Kids Day attractions, her performance and balloons are free

Kids, through age 11, can participate in the Pedal Pull at 1pm, outside the Civic Center. There is opportunity for kids to win trophies, prizes and the chance to go on to the State Pedal Pull competition in the Fall.

Throughout the day, starting in the late morning, the New Ulm Park and Rec Puppet Wagon will be performing shows on the Civic Center lawn.  New Ulm ECFE program will also have great hands-on crafts and fun for the younger kids.

We encourage fairgoers to take a walk through our grounds and visit our exhibitors. The FFA Children's Barnyard is open all day (and every day of the fair) for hands-on interaction with animals and agriculture. And of course, the livestock barns and 4H Building are open for touring, too. Food vendors will be open, to satisfy your appetite. Carnival and ride specials are available Kids Day, and every day. Dock Dogs are coming back and will be jumping during the afternoon.

No preregistration required! Just come to the Brown County Free Fair and enjoy the day. If you're at the Fair early, stop by the Entertainment Hall between 10:30am and 12pm. We'll have coupons, treats and other goodies available for your kids, while supplies last. Printed schedules will be available so you don't miss any part of Kids Day 2017!
