The Lundar Fair

Our Annual Event is held the second weekend in June.

2022 Fair – Friday, June 10th & Saturday, June 11th

The Lundar Fair

The very first Lundar Fair was held in the fall of 1927. Apart from pausing from 1933 to 1953 for the great depression and World War II and for the Global Covid – 19 Pandemic in 2020 and 2021, it’s been held each year. Since then it’s grown into an event that the community looks forward to year after year.

The Lundar Fair is held the second weekend in June.

The 68th Annual Fair will be held Friday, June 10th and Saturday, June 11th, 2022.

Ranch Sorting 

New to Lundar Fair!

Ranch sorting is two riders, two horses, two pens, 11 head of cattle and only 60 seconds to work!                                                                         

Make sure to come and watch on Friday, June 10th starting at 5:00 pm. 

Ranch sorting begins with 11 head of cattle shuttled into two round pens connected by a narrow entrance. Ten of the cattle are wearing numbers 0 through 9 and one is unmarked. The two riders enter the pen without cattle in it and are given a number by the announcer. From the second they enter the pen with cattle they have 59 seconds to work. The riders hear a number 3 for example and first push the cow with No.3 on its back into the empty pen then the No.4 cow then the No.5 and so on until all the marked cattle are in one pen and the unmarked cow in the other pen. If the unmarked cow gets through the entrance or the No.5 cow slips ahead of the No.4 cow, the team receives a “no time”.                                                                

Horse Hitch Demo

There will be a horse hitch demonstration featuring a few of our local light horse and draft horse hitches.

This will be immediately following the parade in the horse ring; it won’t be long so make sure you head over there promptly. Watch for the teams in the parade too.
