Plan to enter grounds via North Gate, which is just south of the lower parking lot when you enter off 4th Avenue, between the Pavillion (paprika colored building) and the Exhibition Hall (where 4 H competitions take place). Come to the Yellowstone Room, which is under the Grandstands, adjacent to the Exchange Club Patio Stage on a Montana Fair map. Here is where you will receive food vouchers to spend at Food Vendors on the midway, as well as grab a bottle of water, visit, relax. There is no formal meeting planned. Exhibit Halls will be open. Carnival starts at 12 noon, and afternoon ride wristbands will be on sale for $21, which gets you unlimited rides from noon until 5 pm (great value if you are bringing kids as your guests). Marty Davis, Country singer, will perform on the Community Stage at 1pm. Other free entertainment on the various stages begins at 2pm.
