Schedule set for 2015 Fair & Rodeo in Coffeyville

Updated:
COFFEYVILLE, KANSAS -

The schedule has been set for the 2015 Inter-State Fair and Rodeo.

This year's fair will run August 8 through the 15th and include fan favorites like the demo derby and rodeo.

New this year is a free barn dance on the final night of fair, August 15. Two Steps Back and Tyler and the Tribe will play in the show arena at 9 pm. “Everybody is welcome, said Jim Lawrence, vice-president of the 2015 Fair and Rodeo. “As soon as the premium sale is over, the livestock people will pull down the pens and we'll roll in a flatbed truck, and the band starts.”

The free barn dance will be held to thank the community for their support. “We want to give back to the community,” Lawrence said.

Another new event at this year's Fair and Rodeo is a Rodeo Clown Reunion. Retired rodeo clowns from across the nation will attend the reunion.

This year's tractor pull will be sanctioned by Lucas Oil instead of the Outlaw Tractor Pullers. The tractor pull is on Monday, August 10.

One of the fair and rodeo volunteers said it succinctly when she stated on social media that the fair is a longtime tradition. “The heart of this eight day event …. is the kids exhibiting their hard work in the show ring or with their award-winning cookies or crafts. It is having that foot-long corn dog you wait all year for, because it just tastes better on the Midway…. It is spending time with your family and friends at the fairgrounds and seeing people you only see once a year.”

Volunteers are what make the fair and rodeo successful, said John Reeves, 2015 chairman, and they put in countless hours and are not paid for their time. “We appreciate the community's support of our fair. We've been putting this fair and rodeo on for 106 years, and we know we couldn't do it without all of our volunteers and the community supporting us.

The fun pass, which admits the bearer to all eight nights of grandstand entertainment, will be discounted for a one-day online sale on June 26 only. After that, the fun pass will cost $35 till July 31. On August 1, the fun pass goes up to $45. Tickets for individual evenings of grandstand entertainment range from $10 to $30, depending on the evening. Tickets can be purchased at the gate and online after July 1.
