Get your fair share of fun
Welcome to the county fair, where family and friends can see circus acts and magic, compete for first prize in homemade foods, vote for the beauty queen, walk the runway in the fashion show and watch live shows. The annual fair season returns, inviting locals to appreciate the odd little pleasures such as tractor pulls, pig racing, barnyards and Elvis. From clowns and circuses to X games and rides, the fairs have events for all ages. Locals also can admire local treasures such as livestock, agriculture and antiques in their own neighborhood. Middle Tennessee has many fairs to choose from, all in different locations and at different times so everyone can visit at least one. The Williamson County Fair starts off the season, inviting everyone to come be a kid again.
