The Manistee County Agricultural Society is committed to providing an annual county fair for the purpose of exhibition of livestock, produce and handiwork, as well as family-oriented entertainment in a wholesome environment.
It is the Society's goal to promote and support youth activities and participation to encourage involvement from surrounding communities. The Manistee County Agricultural Society, periodically throughout the year, will provide or permit to be provided activities on the fairgrounds for public entertainment and enrichment.
The Manistee County Fair originated in 1886 under the name of the Manistee County Agricultural Society and is still recognized as a non-profit Michigan Corporation. Manistee County Fairgrounds is owned by Manistee County and managed by the Board of Directors of the Manistee County
