2021 EXHIBITOR AUCTION
We will be having an Exhibitor’sAuction at the 2021 Southern Iowa Fair. Each animal exhibitor will make one trip through the auction ring. (ex. The 4H/FFA member shows a market pig and a market steer, they make one trip through the ring). Each 4H/FFA member will be responsible to market their own animal after the fair. In order to participate in the auction, you must keep your animal on the fairgrounds the week of the fair and not go home until Saturday at Noon or after. If you choose to leave before the release time, you will not be able to go through the auction.

Species included with this year’s auction: Swine, Swine Pen of 3, Bucket Bottle Calf, Bucket Bottle Lamb, Bucket Bottle Goat, Goats, Beef, Advanced Feeder Cattle, Sheep, Poultry, Meat Goat, Sheep Pen of 3, Rabbits & Horses. The sale order will be sorted by champions and reserve champions by species. If you have the Champion Market Steer and also showed a market hog, you make one trip in the ring in the Champion spot. If you have multiple animals, it’s still one trip to the ring with one winning bid.

If you have any questions, please contact 641-673-7004 or email sifair@mahaska.org.

Welcome

The Southern Iowa Fair is a major attraction for the city of Oskaloosa.  The Southern Iowa Fair was first held on October 23, 1852. In 1858 & 1859 the Iowa State Fair was held in Oskaloosa. The Stock Judging Pavilion was built in 1919. The pavilion was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on April 12, 1984. The Exhibit Hall & Varied Industry Buildings are hubs for fair activities with many 4-H projects placed in the Exhibit Hall and many booths for local businesses set up in the Varied Industries Building. When they are not in use at fair time, the buildings are rented out for weddings, reunions, or winter storage. Our race track is another major attraction to our fairgrounds. We have several events on the race track each year.  You can always catch the fair the third week of July! We would love to have you visit the Southern Iowa Fairgrounds!
