Fair icon & mascot, BARTholomule, made his return in 2018 to the Missouri State Fair featuring an update to his look. We 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 one the look-out for BART strolling the fairgrounds along with potential appearances at major Fair events including Opening Day Ceremony & Parade, Governor’s Ham Breakfast, Military Appreciation Day, among other.

The MSF Truck & Farm Tractor Pull event has been canceled. View refund information and details.
