As one of only 22 county fairs throughout the state, we are indeed fortunate that the Jaycees saw fit to begin this family tradition for Blount County in 1953.
The Blount County Fair features a professionally managed and family-friendly midway full of rides to suit all ages, as well as great food including the traditional fair fare like funnel cakes, cotton candy, popcorn, nachos, and more!
Inside the exhibition hall, you will find a multitude of booths sponsored by various area businesses, as well as community service organizations, churches, and other non-profit organizations. You will be able to register to win door prizes at many of the booths. You will also see booths created by youth clubs such as 4-H, FCCLA, FFA, and other organizations. Check back later to see a list of registered booth vendors closer to Fair time.
In addition to booths, you'll find displayed hundreds of items entered, from garden vegetables, canned goods, flowers, quilts, paintings, photography, flowers, crafts, clothing, and a whole lot more! These individuals compete for prize ribbons and a small monetary prize. Check back for the 'premium list' of all areas of competition; this list will soon be available on this website.
