Like many county fairs, the Pine County Fair features 4-H exhibits, talent shows, open class exhibits, live music, and kid’s activities. However, the Pine County Fair’s biggest draw is the Demolition Derby. Considered by some the “hardest hitting demolition derby in the Midwest”, the derby draws around 100 registrants each year and sells thousands of tickets.
In 2017, the University of Minnesota Extension was contracted to profile attendees and Demolition Derby participants at Pine County Fair and to estimate the Fair’s economic value in the community. The project aimed to assist management decisions, enhance the Fair, and maximize benefits to the community.
