The Tri-County Free Fair is held each summer in Herington, and the namesake comes from the location of the event covering Dickinson, Marion, and Morris counties. The fair is the main summer activity and vacation-type event for many families in the area. The fair includes 4H and FFA activities, parade, rodeo, demolition derby, carnival, kids pedal pull, and more.
