Nestled in central Indiana, Bartholomew County shines as an example of what an American community can be. For a fleeting week during the warm days of summer, people from the surrounding area gather for food, fun, family and friends at the Bartholomew County 4-H Fair.
After the annual event comes to a close and the booths, exhibitions, and rides have been taken away, what remains is a collection of highly viable locations available to rent as a venue for your own event. During the other 11 months, the grounds are busy with events such as the Bill Rogers Classic Cattle Show, the Scottish Festival, and many more attractions. The fairgrounds also hosts year-around public camping, events and wedding receptions.
