- Corn is a vegetable, right?
The Missouri State Fair (2503 W. 16th St., in Sedalia) runs through Sunday, August 18. The gates open daily at 7:30 a.m., and you can catch everything from tractor pulls to Chubby Checker during the busy event. Along the way, you can munch on corn dogs, fried dough and cotton candy – all the things a growing fairgoer needs. Tickets for adults cost $6 in advance or $8 at the fair.
