New this year:
High Stakes Rodeo, a member of the United Rodeo Association will bring all the excitement you expect with Bronco Riding, Calf Robing, Barrel Racing, Team Roping, Steer Wrestling and Bull Riding.
Military Appreciation night - July 13. Local VFW Chapters will host a Color Guard and Honor Guard Ceremony. All Active and Veterans and their families will be given free admission to the fair that night.

Three Breweries Within
Get your drink on in Shawnee! Transport Brewery and Servaes Brewing Company are located in downtown Shawnee literally just one block apart! Transport is a neighborhood style brewery offering all the classic styles anyone could ask for. Dog-friendly, kid-friendly, and great place to kick back, it’s a must to visit. Servaes is known for their experimentation and daily new taps! From key-lime pie sours to coconut cereal stouts, if you like off-the-wall styles and a flight full of different flavors, check it out.
Five minutes south at 75th & Nieman Road, Pathlight Brewing is quickly making a name for itself in the KC craft beer scene too! Just five minutes from the downtown breweries, Pathlight is known for their IPA’s and wild ales….oh, and they offer premium whisky pours too.
