The Lane County Fair is an annual fair held in Eugene, Oregon mid-summer featuring food, music, and other entertainment. It is held at the Lane County Fairgrounds.

Reviews are mixed, even a single review:

Deep fried sugar, rigged carnival games, braying livestock, washed-up rock bands and bone-rattling carnival rides of dubious integrity: The Lane County Fair is simultaneously the best of times and the worst of times.[1]

In 1973, the fair was considered best in state for Oregon county fairs of more than 100,000 people in attendance.[2]

The Eugene Saturday Market's Holiday Market is held annually at the Lane County Fairgrounds.
