The 2016 fair is officially over! The Board of Directors wants to thank everyone who worked and visited the fair this past week. It would not be possible without you all. We hope that you enjoyed your time with us and want to come back next year. We had wonderful weather, even if it was hot majority of the week, with rain only happening on Saturday night. However, we were still able to have our derby! Please check the site as we may be making changes to events and/or dates for the next year. Also, if you have any comments or suggestions- check out the contact us button and find the appropriate information for the area in which you are needing. Check out our Facebook page for pictures and live footage of the 2016 fair. Thank you for Ridin’ Rockin’ and Livestockin’ with us this year!
Sarah Kinnaird, current Nursing Student at Vol State Community College and 2015 graduate of White County High School, was named Fairest of the Fair in last night’s pageant. She will go on to compete at the state pageant held in Nashville in January of 2017. You will be able to see Sarah around the fair this week- from handing out ribbons to assisting with Kids Zone/Farmer for a Day on Thursday. Congratulations Sarah, we look forward to a wonderful year with you!

The White County Fair will be celebrating 162 years of fair fun during 2016! Make sure to check out all the events and exhibits. We have added new things this year that you will not want to miss out on: Lego Build & Bee Keeping Exhibit, along with the return of the Demolition Derby, Corn Hole Tournament, and so much more.
With the fair being only weeks away and we are looking for additional help. Help to get the grounds cleaned up and to complete some new projects. If you would like to volunteer and help out, we will be working every Tuesday and Thursday starting this next week. As the fair gets closer we will work almost every afternoon. Thanks in advance!
