In the beginning, a small group of individuals met to discuss the agri-tourism trend sweeping the country and how the Williamson County Ag Expo Park and the UT Extension Service could partner to capture that enthusiasm in our county. Thus the idea to bring back a traditional county fair was born and the new Williamson County Fair was held in 2005.

Each year the Williamson County Fair has grown, and has captured the attention of state and national associations. The Tennessee Association of Fairs (TAF) and the International Association of Fairs & Expos (IAFE) has honored the fair with various awards and recognitions through the years. The most exciting accomplishments were received in January, 2014 at the annual TAF Convention where they were awarded the AAA Division State Champion Fair for the 2013 fair, and at the TAF Convention in January, 2015 where they received the AAA Division Premier Fair for the 2014 fair.

The Fair Board has partnered with numerous volunteers, community organizations, businesses and sponsors to ensure each year built upon the success of the prior year. These partnerships have resulted in them being able to continue to provide a safe, educational and fun community event for visitors of all ages to enjoy!

They continue to celebrate the county’s agricultural heritage, the community, and the memories of the families who have joined them as they began generational traditions of their own.

The Williamson County Fair Board is thankful for their sponsors and the community who has supported the dedicated efforts of the volunteers who donate their time and energy to provide education and entertainment.
