Country Scenes and Children's Dreams is the theme at the 2017 Boonville-Oneida County Fair. The fair runs Tuesday, July 25 through Sunday, July 30th. Here's the what and when.

To steal an old advertising cliche', there's something for the kid in all of us. Whether that dream involves taking home a ribbon in one of the many NYS 4-H Youth Development Program shows, enjoying a spin on the midway, scrumptious fair food or action in the grandstand.

Advance daily tickets are $4 for adults and you can get the Fun Pass for $20, it gets you in everyday. Regular admission is $5, 60 & Over $3.00 and kids 12 and under are free.
