Since 1928, the Upper Peninsula State Fair has provided a place for folks from across the nation to experience and celebrate the unique culture and heritage of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. The "Fair" remains as unique and wonderful as the people and places found across this marvelous peninsula.
Nowhere is the slogan "Pure Michigan" more suitable than in Escanaba during the annual Upper Peninsula State Fair. Come experience "Pure Fun, Pure Goodness, and Pure Michigan" at the Upper Peninsula State Fair - this year and every year!
It is that time again! Soon, the sights, sounds and smells of summer festivals and fairs will fill the midwest and participants will be looking forward to enjoying elephant ears, cotton candy and carnival rides. For us, the excitement begins now and culminates when the Upper Peninsula State Fair, Michigan’s only State Fair.
This year marks the 87th anniversary of the Upper Peninsula State Fair and the fourth under the direction of the UP State Fair Authority. We would like to invite you to join us in helping more than 60,000 fairgoers enjoy the UPSF and its continuing tradition of showcasing the rich heritage of the Upper Peninsula.
