It’s great to be back! I’d like to welcome everyone to the 2021 Lincoln County Fair – we certainly missed you last year! This year marks the 116th fair, and we will be celebrating “Sunflowers, Boots, and Agriculture Roots.” Lincoln County has a rich agricultural heritage and we are happy to showcase that heritage throughout our eight-day event. I’d like to thank all our supporters who continue to make our fair a success year after year and I can't leave out all of our amazing volunteers, thank you!

We know that for many, the Lincoln County Fair is a place to renew friendships, build business relationships, and make memories. While we were greatly disappointed to cancel last year’s fair, it makes each reunion and event this year that much more special. We hope you are as eager as we are to experience all the delights of the fair once again!

We’ve packed the schedule with many fun activities for you and the whole family to enjoy. We’re kicking things off on Saturday, Sept. 18 in the grandstands with a performance from Jimmie Allen, the ACM’s 2021 New Male Artist of the Year! And of course closing the week with the Demolition Derby on Saturday, Sept. 25.

To make the return of the fair even more exciting, we’re including some major giveaways – including a Toyota Camry giveaway on Saturday night, a JD Z530M Mower on Friday night during the Truck & Tractor Pull, and a 6x14 Rockin S Utility Trailer on Thursday night during the Rodeo. You can find details for all our exciting giveaways in the catalog or at The Country Store, located beside the grandstands.

Our livestock barns will be stocked with cattle, hogs, goats, sheep, horses, chickens, and rabbits. Stop by any day and see local producers compete for awards in the livestock shows. Take in the exhibits by local 4H and FFA students, as well as farmers and gardeners who have worked hard all year to grow, sew, and create works that showcase their amazing talent and skills.

Of course, the Midway will be lit up with lights and sounds of your favorite carnival rides. We’d like to thank BelleCity Amusements for providing rides that include both old favorites and new adventures. Be sure to check our fair schedule for our special “All You Can Ride” armband days and experience every ride we have to offer.

As you work your way through our many events, competitions, and rides, grab a bite from many great local food vendors. Enjoy slawburgers, BBQ, Mexican food, and many more local favorites.

And certainly don’t miss your chance to see the harness races every afternoon Tuesday through Saturday, with additional races on Tuesday night. The Lincoln County Fair offers the only harness racing events in the entire state of Tennessee! If you’ve never seen this type of racing, I highly encourage you to make time during your visit to enjoy this great tradition.

After a year without the fair, we hope you make the most of your visit in 2021. See the handiwork of local artisans in the Creative Living building, tour the ag exhibit, ride your favorite rides, enjoy delicious carnival food, and watch any of the numerous performances in the grandstands.

If any of our board members or I can be of any assistance to you, please reach out when you see us on the grounds or come by the office and we will be glad to help in any way!

Again, WELCOME BACK, and I hope you enjoy your time at the 2021 Lincoln County Fair!

Dear Friends,

I want to welcome you to the 2021 Lincoln County Fair. I hope you, your family and neighbors will join us for this exciting agricultural showcase. The theme, "Sunflowers, Boots & Agriculture Roots,” assures there are plenty of adventures for everyone. The Lincoln County Fair offers all visitors the opportunity to experience the very best that Tennessee agriculture and farming have to offer.

Last year was difficult for us all. So many beloved community events were canceled to preserve citizens’ health and safety amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The Lincoln County Fair Board and volunteers work hard to create an enjoyable fair, and I know they are proud to resume that tradition this year.

The Lincoln County Fair provides families and friends the chance to be together and experience agricultural events and educational programs. Come cheer for your favorite animals at the livestock shows. See the beautiful flowers and crops your neighbors have grown and nurtured. Be tempted by the sweet and savory smells from the baking and cooking contests. And support the 4-H and FFA members who worked so hard to showcase their projects at the fair. People of all ages will have fun and learn more about our great state of Tennessee.

The Lincoln County Fair is commemorating its 116th fair in 2021, and I hope you will join us in celebrating all that makes Lincoln County so special.
