5th Almost Annual Washington County Fair Ride

  • Bennington High School 16610 Bennington Road Bennington, NE, 68007 United States (map)

If you're not on, or recovering from RAGBRAI, join us at 8:00 am SUNDAY JULY 29, 2018 for the 5th Almost Annual WASHINGTON COUNTY FAIR BICYCLE RIDE

BENNINGTON HIGH SCHOOL at 168TH & BENNINGTON ROAD TO WASHINGTON COUNTY FAIR IN ARLINGTON, NE AND RETURN

The Washington County Fair is inviting cyclists to enjoy a great 32, 44, or 57 mile road route OR a 37 mile Gravel route Sunday morning ride from Bennington, NE through the country to Arlington, Nebraska. The goal of the ride is to create additional awareness of the Washington County Fair and hopefully engage people who wouldn't normally be exposed to agriculture and livestock production.

WE’RE RIDING FOR $20 & you get a free entry to the fair, ticket to the pancake feed, and for those 21 and over, a free beer token if you'd like! 

If you would like to make an additional contribution, funds raised will support Wear Yellow Nebraska's Wear Yellow Cab Ride Program.

The Washington County Fair started 1918 to develop better methods in food production, foster development of resources, and promote prosperity. It’s successfully incorporated that to become a facility that allows 4-H members, businesses, and organizations to showcase their talents and ag-related products, and which provides entertainment to bring together the community.
