Coming soon: County Fair moving to Original Mineyard this summer

The Butte-Silver Bow County Fair is moving to new digs this summer, and organizers are pumped about the location and plans for the three-day event.

After four years at the rodeo grounds and one cancellation in 2020 due to COVID, the fair will be held July 27-29 at the Original Mineyard in Uptown Butte, a venue that’s becoming more popular every year.

“It’s a really cool, cool venue,” said Josh O’Neill, a Butte-Silver Bow commissioner and member of the Fair Board. “The Original is one of the better places in the state of Montana, if not the country.”

The site will play host to small animals and livestock, of course, 4-H kids and their families, contests and fair food, and Butte daredevil Levi Renz and other freestyle motorcycle riders will do jumps and sky-high flips.

Country music singer Priscilla Block, who burst onto the Nashville scene a few years ago, will be in concert Friday night, July 28, and Butte-based band High Ore Road will hit the stage the next night.
