There is something for everyone at the 109th annual Bear River Fair.  Throughout the two-day event enjoy the softball tournament (contact Tony at the Viking 218-376-4622), bazaar (contact Hazel at 218-969-3755) and shopping at the Fair Market (contact Jane at 218-376-4556). Bingo is back this year, too!


Walk through all the exhibits, and enjoy a pig roast on Saturday night. There will be live music from 3:00 - 7:00 p.m. by the “Lake Street Gang.”  

Sunday brings a morning worship service up in the pines at 10:30 a.m. followed by a dinner of Swedish Meatballs with mashed potatoes.  Dessert will follow with Coffee & Pie served by the folks from Bear River Church.

Casey Aro will be sharing his music and humor on Sunday afternoon.

A Scavenger Hunt will be great for ages 12 and over – with cash prizes at the end!
