Umatilla Co. Fair Announces Bigger, Better Carnival This Year

Widespread rumors that the carnival that this year's Umatilla County Fair has been eliminated are not true.

In fact, fair organizers say this year's carnival will be bigger and better than ever.

Due to construction of a new athletic complex at Hermiston High School, the carnival will be moved to a larger area west of the new field.

Carnival wristbands are now on sale.

The annual fair parade is Saturday, August 3rd in downtown Hermiston with the fair officially opening on Tuesday, August 6th.
