The Umatilla County Fairis a fair held in Hermiston in Umatilla County, Oregon, in the middle of August each year, running Tuesday afternoon through Sunday evening. Started in August 1912, it was known as the Hermiston Dairy and Hog Show as a joint fair with Morrow County, a one time only affair since legislation in 1913 changed it so that it was no longer possible to have a bi-county fair.
This old fashioned fair is held annually in Eastern Oregon and generally provides traveling carnival rides, livestock and open class exhibits, live entertainers with bleacher capacity of about 500 people in conjunction with Farm City Pro Rodeo.
