WILSON COUNTY, TN (August 12, 2021) – There is a 40+ year history of fairs in Wilson County. Only 16 state fairs in the country are larger than the Wilson County Fair.
After the Tennessee State Fair was pushed from the Fairgrounds in Nashville, officials thought it would be a perfect match for the State Fair.
The theme “Honoring Hometown Heroes” will feature exhibits from all 95 participating counties, and celebrating the “Year of Beef” as the agriculture commodity as the fair runs from Aug. 12-21.
Even with the new name and new location for the state fair, don’t expect a drastic change to the venue many locals have loved for a long time. “We are basically doing all the events that we have done in the past. Our look and decorations are the same, but we have taken a lot of our events and made state fair events out of them,” Randall Clemons, President of Wilson County Fair-Tennessee State Fair.
Mask wearing will be encouraged inside buildings and there will be sanitary protocols to keep everyone safe. Social distancing is encouraged and hand sanitizing stations have been placed over the property, the rides be sprayed a couple of times a week and will be wiped down from time to time.
