The 2019 Mitchell County Fair, Osage, will run July 31-Aug. 4 with food, fun and entertainment all planned by the Mitchell County Fair Board.

A host of grandstand entertainment will be featured with Tuff Trucks as headliner for the Thursday, Aug. 1 show. Action begins at 7 p.m. at the Grandstands.

It will be a night of competition when older, inexpensive vehicles (or newer expensive vehicles) in their nearly stock configuration will be taken through a course of bumps, jumps, and mud racing against the clock to determine a winner.

The contest will include both 2-wheel and 4-wheel drive trucks.

The popular sanctioned tractor pull returns to the grandstand at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, July 21. Figure 8 Races will be held again this year at 7 p.m. on Friday night. The fair will end with the ever-popular car demo derby by Masters of Disasters. Demo begins at 7 p.m.

The 11th annual Barbecue Cook-Off fires up on Friday, Aug. 2 with judging on Saturday, Aug. 3, which is also Kids’ Day at the Fair. There is a kids' BBQ contest scheduled for Friday evening.
