Kentucky State Fair

937 Phillips Lane

The unique, family-friendly 11-day festival that celebrates local and statewide heritage gives far more to the Commonwealth than merely blue ribbon competition, concerts, special exhibits and carnival rides. It is a showcase for Kentucky’s finest products, companies, entertainment, and, most importantly, people. It continues to garner the financial strength and public support it needs to stand out as one of the most anticipated summer attractions in the commonwealth as it generated approximately $16.5 million in economic impact. These assets make it possible for the fair to feature new competitions and entertainment while nurturing its core concepts, including education, agriculture and music showcase.

The Kentucky State Fair is one of the great thrills when your visit KY. Held around the middle of August each year, there is something for everyone. You will find farm animals and machinery, dozens of rides, the thrill way, cotton candy, elephant ears, contests, exhibit s, robots, Freddie Farmer and on and on . Be prepared to spend the day.

This is by far the worst fair ever. Less booths the kingdom rides were closed even for the people that bought passes. Never wasting money for this again
