Carnival Rides

Thomas Carnival logo



The Mighty Thomas Carnival brings the midway to the 2018 Montana State Fair in Great Falls July 27-August 4.  This traveling carnival presents thrilling rides, fun games, and tasty carnival treats at Montana ExpoPark for the 25th straight year.  Founded in 1928 in Lennox, South Dakota, by Art B. Thomas, the show now winters near Austin, Texas, and is providing its 89th season of summer fun and excitement for fair-goers at 51 events in 12 states.  The 2018 tour began at Pearland Winterfest in Texas on January 30, and then continued at fairs and festivals throughout the Lone Star State for the next four months before heading north for appearances in Iowa, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota, and Montana. After leaving Montana, the show will operate at events in Idaho, Utah, Arkansas, and Louisiana before returning home to Texas in late October.


The main carnival office is located on the midway and administrative staff is always available for questions and comments.  Credit cards are accepted at our box offices, and ATMs are located on the midway.  The carnival maintains a corner general store open to fair customers, stocked with a small variety of personal items they might have forgotten for their long day visiting the fair.
