Tons of Fun, Plenty of Traffic – 100th Deschutes County Fair Begins

The 100th Deschutes County Fair officially started Wednesday – as if you hadn’t noticed all the traffic heading into Redmond. It’s the most-attended county fair in the state of Oregon with more than a quarter million people expected through the gates.

As the weekend approaches, fairgoers can expect traffic delays, a crowded parking lot – but also a lot of fun.

Central Oregon Daily’s Meghan Glova has more on what you can expect as you head to the fair.
