Welcome to the official Rapides Parish Fair website! THERE IS NO ENTRY FEE TO ENTER THE FAIR. This is the place to find concert information, ride lists, 4-H and FFA livestock competitions, information to help you enter your exhibits and all the information you need to enter contests (such as pumpkin contest for pre 4-H'ers) and competitions. We have loads of great FREE entertainment for the entire family. Tons of food vendors with every type of food you can imagine, rides, games and more for all ages. Visit Vendor Alley.
The fair grounds are located on Hwy 71 South next to the State Evacuation Shelter, 8149 Hwy 71 South right past the LSU-A campus. This year will have added 1,320 extra parking spaces on the grounds and our partnership with LSUA. Parking on the Rapides Fair Grounds is free. There will be a $5 charge to park on the LSU-A Campus in the designated parking areas. You can ride the trolley free of charge and get dropped off at the fair grounds.
The Arts and Crafts exhibits, Senior Citizen's Day, and Barnyard Nursery will be held at the Evac Shelter. The 4-H & FFA livestock shows will be held at Dewitt Livestock Facility right next to the Evac Shelter.
