Top rodeo cowboys & cowgirls from around the state will be traveling to Shelby Montana, competing for their chance to win at the Marias Fair.
Thursday & Friday nights, after the rodeo, 9 pm till Midnight
We loved them last year, and they're coming back this year!
Boone Country Band has a wide range set list, playing nothing but good foot stompin' music. They'll be set up and ready to play right after the rodeo, both Thursday and Friday nights. And, there's not necessarily a time limit - they're going to play for as long as you can dance.
Sunday Afternoon, July 22 @ 2:00 pm
New to the Marias Fair!
The Montana Pullers Association is hosting a Truck and Tractor Pull in the arena at the grandstands, Sunday, July 22, 2018.
Details on how to participate will be available soon!
Saturday, July 21 @ 7:00 pm
The Demolition Derby returns to the Marias Fair! It is once again a 'Chain & Bang' style derby. This creates added opportunity for those interested in running a car in the event. The cars are not to be heavily modified and are more or less a simple stripped-down stock car, with driver protection. We call it “Chain & Bang” because the doors, hood and truck will all be chained shut, rather than welded. All things considered… BANG is still the name of the game! Are you coming out to watch or are you taking part in the demolition? Your choice!
NEW for 2018: The Derby has been moved to SATURDAY NIGHT!! Fireworks to Follow!!
The Tractor Show starts at noon on Wednesday, July 18th, and goes through Sunday, July 22nd.
Any tractor or implement made before 1980 is welcome. Pre-register to ensure you reserve a spot. (You may register upon arrival, as well.)
There will be prizes for several different divisions. One of which, will be "People's Choice".
*NEW for 2018*: Want to compete in the Truck & Tractor pulls on Sunday? Well this just might be possible! We're working on the details and will have more info available soon.
The local FFA Chapters are planning the 2nd Annual FFA Heifer Show & Sale at the Marias Fair. All FFA chapters in the 4-County area have been invited to participate.
Each FFA chapter has the opportunity to bring one halter-broke, bred heifer to the fair. These heifers, in a class all their own, will show on Friday the 20th, after the Breeds Show. Then, each heifer will be auctioned off in front of the grandstands at the NRA Rodeo on Friday evening. EVERYONE is invited to attend! Top bidders will be winners of some fine high quality females! No need to bring your trailer or lead rope, the FFA members will arrange for transportation of the animals to your front door (or summer pasture if you prefer).
Do you have products, crafts, photographs, paintings, candy, jewelry, tuperware, tools, etc. that you would like to sell at the fair? Would you like to have a food booth or set up an informational display? Sign up for a vendor booth at the Marias Fair!
Options for Vendor Booths:
