When you think about a fair, you usually think of summertime. However, Montanans are hardy folk and we won't let winter stop us from having a good time. And good times are what you'll find this weekend (Jan 24-26) in Lewistown at the 75th Montana Winter Fair.

Lewistown is a great little community with lots of history. Maybe you've spent some time there during kids sporting events, or perhaps you've stopped for a burger on your way to somewhere else. Friendly people, small town charm and a nice selection of restaurants and accommodations. Normally, the roads to Lewistown can be a little treacherous this time of year, but since it's been so nice lately road conditions shouldn't be a concern. So why not hit the road to Lewistown this weekend?

Some of the scheduled events for Montana Winter Fair this year include:

  • Ski Joring
  • Ranch Rodeo
  • An Arm Wrestling Competion
  • Chess Competition
  • Stick Horse Rodeo
  • Old McDonald's Barn (petting zoo)
  • Dutch Oven Cook-Off
  • Chili and Cinnamon Roll Competition

There are various lodging options in Lewistown, from cabins to luxury accommodations, so if you plan on getting rowdy, book a room.
