Pictured above is Bobby Wassmer preparing to place his pig back into its pen and win his fifth World Championship title during last year’s fair. Bobby last won in 1998. The Pig-N-Ford Races provide fast and furious action for fairgoers to enjoy.
Averill Arena will be packed with spectators for the 83rd running of the world-famous PIG-N-FORD RACES. There will be two races Thursday, Friday and Saturday, starting at 5:30 p.m. Winners of these races will compete in the World Championship Finals on Saturday immediately following the two qualifying races. Be sure to get your seat in the grandstands early to enjoy these crowd-pleasing and exciting races. Tillamook's own PIG-N-FORD RACES have been featured on Good Morning America, KATU's "Spirit of the Northwest", National Geographic, the internet and Comedy Central. They are an integral part of the Tillamook County Fair. The Fair Board thanks them for their efforts in pleasing fairgoers for all these years.
