Kentucky State Fair 2017
The Kentucky State Fair is coming up (August 17-27, 2017), and we couldn't be more excited! Who doesn’t love a good fair!? The Kentucky State Fair offers so much to see and do! More than 600,000 fairgoers fill the 520 acres of indoor and outdoor exhibits, eat a smorgasbord of food and ride hair-raising, adrenaline-pumping coasters during the 11-day event. The Kentucky State Fair includes competitions in crafts, homemade pastries, fine arts, and agriculture. The event is also budget friendly, especially for families with young children.
Did you know the first Kentucky State Fair was organized in 1816!? The location has changed a few times, and the event has grown substantially. The State Fair now generates more than $15.3 million in economic impact across the Commonwealth! It's not surprising that the event is Kentucky's largest summertime attraction.
The music certainly draws the crowds with over 90 artists delivering 650 hours of performances. Check out the official fair website for schedules of the famous bands and solo artists performing at the Fair.
Ticket, ride, and additional information can be found on the Kentucky State Fair website. We hope to see you there!
