The Midway Roadhouse is the fair’s newest entertainment venue.   By day, the Midway Roadhouse serves as an area for fairgoers to sit down and enjoy the fair, whether it’s the company, fair food or entertainment. During the day fairgoers can enjoy everything from acoustic musicians to jugglers. By night, it transforms into an outdoor concert area, providing a fun beer garden atmosphere, with bands performing Friday-Sunday.
