The 100th Benton County Fair is just around the corner and that means it is time to get registered for another great talent show!


This year's talent show qualifying rounds will be on Thursday, August 2 and Friday, August 3 at 7pm. The Finals will be held on Saturday, August 4 at 7pm. All talent show performances will be at the Cottowood Stage in the middle of the fairgrounds.

There are three categories to compete in. There's an open division for any age, teen division (13-18) and a pre-teen division. The winner of each category will get a cash prize and will be sent to represent the Benton County Fair at the Minnesota State Fair later in August.

If you have talent, make sure you get signed up soon so you can join us on stage and share your talent with everyone at the Benton County Fair. Visit to get signed up. The judges and I will see you on August 2, 3 and 4 - just make sure you bring your "A" game!
