We recently took our kids to the Washington County Fair. I actually grew up going to another county fair (also in Oregon), which was always incredibly anticlimatic. It was seriously cows, jams, and 1 ride. The Washington County Fair, on the other had, is just a (slightly) smaller and (much) cheaper of the Oregon State Fair. It is also 5 minutes from our house, instead of the hour it takes to get to the state fairgrounds. This year's fair was slightly more low-key than usual because the Air Show, which was across the street was happening the same weekend and many of the livestock classes were shown a few weeks earlier due to the noise that comes with the air show. Still, it was a fabulous way to spend the day!
