KING"S FAIR 2013:
Saturday, September 21st 12:00PM-5:00PM @ Matthew's Park
List of activities: http://kingsfair.wordpress.com/schedu...

Seward's "King's" Fair actually has nothing to do with royalty. It is named after Colonel William S. King who was in charge of the first "Minneapolis Exposition" which operated from 1877 to 1882 on what was once a large fairground in the Seward neighborhood of Minneapolis. There was an agricultural Hall, Mechanical Hall, Art Hall, Racetrack, Amphitheater, dining-rooms and stables. In 1878 the fair was such a great success that it began to compete with the Official Minnesota State Fair in St. Paul. It was eventually outdone by its competition and closed after 1882. Beginning in 1979, King's Fair has been remembered and celebrated biannually at Mathews Park with help from Seward community volunteers.
