Thank you for your interest in supporting the McLeod County Fair Foundation! 

Our foundation was recently established in 2019 as a 501(c)3 charitable foundation.  Tax deductible donations to this foundation will directly impact and enhance the educational programming of the McLeod County Fair, located in Hutchinson, MN.  

Our mission is to enhance the educational opportunities and experiences at the McLeod County Fair.  The McLeod County Fair was first held in 1872 and has been a long-standing tradition in our community ever since.  Education is, and always has been, one of the main components to our fair.  In the earliest fairs, people attended to learn from one another and to showcase their talents and knowledge.  To this day, the same holds true.  As hosts of the fair, the McLeod County Agricultural Association focuses on providing the people of the McLeod County area with a high quality, family friendly, educational and entertaining fair, by showcasing the innovation and history of business, agriculture and the arts.

The McLeod County Agricultural Association is a 150 + year old and we are honored to be the caretakers of an organization with such deep history in Minnesota. The look and scope of the fair may have broadened since 1872, but our core values and priority on education has remained the same.  Thank you for supporting our educational programming.   We look forward to seeing how our event continues to grow and progress well beyond our 150 years!
