The Johnson County Fair has been celebrating all of the best, while preserving the agricultural heritage of our community since 1939. The Johnson County Fair has activities for everyone to enjoy. The fair is free, except for the carnival and nightly arena events. Come view exhibits from the arts to baking, horses to livestock, there is something for everyone.

The Johnson County Fair will run from July 26 through Aug 1, 2021. The parade event will be held on Saturday morning, July 31.
The Battle Within was founded by over 100 veterans, first responders, community leaders and supporters who believe that every warrior deserves the same opportunity to heal from the traumas they have endured in their service to others. We have come together to build a community for warriors nationwide to attend for free, a five-day program built by warriors using holistic techniques steeped in ancient warrior culture and backed by modern evidence-based methods.
