Murphy Brothers Carnival


50 years of tradition

Murphy Brothers has been bringing carnival rides to Grand Forks and North Dakota for 50 years. Join us again this year as Murphy brings the carnival fun for the Greater Grand Forks Fair. We plan to show pictures of some of the rides coming to the Fair this year as we get them from Murphy Brothers. Check back to this page as we get closer to our Fair dates.

Advance passes for the rides, both single day and full fair, will be available soon at all Hugo's Family Marketplace Stores and Valley Dairy Stores in the Grand Forks area. Advance passes much be purchased by Wednesday, June 20th. They include the Gate Fee for the Fair. Ride passes will also be available from Murphy Brothers on the midway when the Fair is open. Single ride tickets will also be available on the Midway. Daily ride bands mega passes and individual ride tickets are available from the carnival.

In addition to the rides, the Murphy Brothers Midway includes a variety of carnival games, and some great Fair food options. Try your hand at one of the many carnival games and win some fun prizes for yourself or someone else.
