The Oneida County Fair was first introduced to the citizens of Oneida County in August of 1896. It was also the year that famed writer, timber cruiser, and hometown prankster Gene Shepard brought his mythical creature, the Hodag, from timber camp folklore to real life. For the price of one thin dime, the community got a peek at the creature that would soon become infamous - not just to the community but worldwide!

The Oneida County Fair is held at Pioneer Park in the heart of Rhinelander. This location allows easy access and visibility to a wider visitor base. Within a matter of days every year, this beautiful park transforms into a quaint, old-fashioned county fair.

One of the events that make this county fair stand out is the exhibition tent. Within this tent lays the proud displays from all age ranges and interests throughout the communitee.
