Red Willow County Fair
W 5th, McCook, NE 69001
A variety of equine events draw 30,000 to 40,000 horse lovers to the Kiplinger Arena at the Red Willow County Fairgrounds each year. July in McCook means it is Red Willow County Fair time. This fair is the sort that everyone seems to think of when they think of old-fashioned county fairs: the smell of corndogs and popcorn floating on the air, livestock bawling from the show ring, wide-smiled children proudly clutching purple ribbons and carnival rides lighting the night sky. There is all of that and much more at the Red Willow County Fair.
