Each night, activities are going on at 2 locations at the same time. Thursday through Saturday nights the main stage on the upper field is host to well-known professional entertainment while the lower track has demolition derbies, professional bull riding, truck and tractor pulls, and motocross. People have been known to come from Oklahoma, Iowa, Illinois, and other states just to attend and participate in these events. In the past, Toby Keith, Rascal Flatts, Kenny Chesney, Gary Allan, Hunter Hayes and Charlie Daniels have graced the stage of the Gasconade County Fair.
The exhibit halls have agricultural products, baked and canned foods, hand-made creations, flowers, and 4-H and Scouts projects.
