Free Entertainment in 2018

Fair icon & mascot, BARTholomule, will make his return to the 2018 Missouri State Fair featuring an update to his look. We’ve added a pop of red with his bow tie. The red B on his vest adds a retro look – reminiscent of a letterman’s sweater.

Be on the look-out for Bart strolling the fairgrounds all Fair long! He will also be making potential appearances at major Fair events including the Opening Day Ceremony & Parade, Governor’s Ham Breakfast, Military Appreciation Day, among others. Welcome Home, Bart!
