Getting ready for the 2023 MontanaFair



Billings, Montana – As MontanaFair gets underway today, “Thomas Carnival” arrived on Monday to set up a variety of games, food sellers, and rides for the thousands of visitors who are anticipated over the course of the nine-day festival.

“I’ve been doing this for 44 years, and it’s always a joy to do,” said John Hanschen, the president of ‘Thomas Carnival’.

“We meet people and form relationships here because we recognize people after they come back year after year.”

Numerous visitors are anticipated at MontanaFair, which will benefit Yellowstone County as well as the fair’s vendors.

“We’re already seeing hotels getting a lot of business,” said Tim Goodridge, the Assistant General Manager for MetraPark.

“Restaurants get a lot of activity. People buy cars, they buy tires, they buy groceries. They come into town and get set up for school too.”
