Tennessee State Fair
The Tennessee State Fair proudly presents “The Heart of Tennessee,” its theme for the 2018 edition of this landmark event, which was inaugurated more than 150 years ago.
This year’s Fair continues the longstanding traditions of family entertainment, educational experiences and state pride.
Operated and managed by a volunteer board, the Fair invites you to share in the excitement of this year’s ten day extravaganza beginning Friday, September 7 and continuing through Sunday, September 16.
The Tennessee State Fair is an annual event that highlights what makes America and Tennessee great. Across the country, State Fairs are more than just a good time. They are hands-on exhibits of how we live our lives.
The Fair features arts and crafts, explores agriculture and allows attendants to have new and exciting experiences. From honoring the State’s best homemade apple pie to the thrilling rides, the Tennessee State Fair has something for everyone to enjoy.
The Tennessee State Fair Association was formed to promote the education of agriculture, horticulture, the creative arts, performing arts, industry, commerce, recreation, economic development, natural resources, and related areas to the public, through the planning, promotion, conduct, and operation of an annual Tennessee State Fair.
