Rosie's Ponies and Petting Zoo

FREE pony rides and petting zoo all week with paid admission! We are so happy to have Rosie back at the Jessamine County Fair!

Get up close and learn about animals at several fair events!

Did you know… Support of agriculture and agricultural education are central to the core mission of the Jessamine County Fair!

Here are some highlights and NEW animal/agricultural events for 2023:

  • If you’ve never seen the greased pig (Wednesday and Friday nights at 8:00 PM) you owe it to yourself to attend! It may be the most exciting event at the fair!
  • On Wednesday night the fair will host its third Alpaca and Llama Fun Show. This show is the only one of it’s kind in Central Kentucky! Come see the camelids navigate an obstacle course and you might even be lucky enough to meet and pet one!
  • The Swine Show on Thursday night at 6 p.m. is in it’s third year!
  • The Pet Show on Saturday morning at 11:00 a.m. is totally free, both to watch or to participate.
