Special Announcement from the Missouri State Fair

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT! To many, the Main Gate is the most iconic piece of our Fairgrounds and every year it welcomes thousands of Missourians Home to their State Fair. Many Fairgoers have mentioned over the years that they wanted to be able to take a picture with the Main Gate. Well, you asked and we listened. 

NEW this year, a one-third scale replica of the West 16th Street Main Gate, built and donated in part by WB Young Company of Marshall, will debut at the 2017 Missouri State Fair! 

The Main Gate Tribute will be a great photo opportunity for fairgoers and it will be a permanent structure, making it a perfect opportunity for a new tradition! The gate tribute will be installed soon; be sure to check back regularly for pictures! We can't wait to welcome you home at the 2017 Missouri State Fair! #MoStateFair #ComeHome2017 #MSFMainGate
