Steele Saloon

The Steele Saloon is the place to get out of the sun and enjoy a cool refreshing beverage from a cold beer to a mixed drink.

The saloon is the sight of the Steele County Showdown on Tuesday, August 15th brought to the fair by the Midwest All-Star Wrestling. The show is free for all ages with viewing from the inside or outside of the Steele Saloon.

No one under 21 will be allowed in the saloon during the week of the fair but viewing from the outside the saloon is available during the wrestling show. WWE Superstar Gangrel Devil from the brood is the headliner with some local celebrities on the card with bell time at 7:00 pm.

Enjoy Oktoberfest by listening to some good old German polka music on Wednesday with the Concord Singers from New Ulm at 5:30 pm.

Thursday is 80s Dress Up Night.

On Saturday, enjoy the Bloody Mary Bar from 9:00 am to 1 pm and enter the Corn Hole Tournament that starts at 11 am.

Sunday, the Bloody Mary Bar is open from 11 to 1, with a first ever Euchre Tournament starting at noon.
