Ted Wright Note: Although the Collinsville Tri-County Fair is 60 years old, Collinsville had many fairs before that event was organized with an official board. There were many fairs reported in the Collinsville newspapers in the years before 1946. The fair associated with the October 1907 Pow Wow is a prime example. In 1945 there was no fair due to shortages caused by World War II.
