The Board of Directors determines the admission price each year prior to the fair. For 2021, the admission price has been set at $12 per person every night of the fair.

Parking is always FREE and conveniently located within the fairgrounds.

No. We would love to be able to offer this but as yet we have not found a way to do so economically.

The fair is committed to protecting the health and safety of visitors. We will be consulting with the Jessamine County Health Department on COVID sanitation and social distancing/mask guidelines and implementing those recommendations.

This website allows us to publish our official fair schedule and all the details about the fair events and official notices. Our social media feeds contain the latest discussions and “buzz” about the fair. If you want to stay tuned into the very latest information feeds, follow us on Facebook. If you need official rules, entry forms, etc., then you’ll find them on this website when they’re available.

We’re always looking for people willing to help plan and execute the fair! The one thing all the board members have in common is a love of the fair. Often, members have specific venues that are their areas of focus but we all want the fair to be the best it can be. We plan all year for just six days in the heart of summer. It’s a lot of fun but also a lot of work. If you think this might interest you, come to one of our meetings or reach out to any fair board member. If you don’t know a fair board member, contact someone via the About Us page. By the way, we are all volunteers. Our by-laws prevent paying our members for anything so people that do business with the fair can’t be board members.

We are adding an Information Booth for the 2021 fair, which will be staffed by a member of the fair board. If there is an issue during the fair, this is a central point of contact for anything you need. The Information Booth can bring the right resources to bear on any problem from a lost item to spectator concerns, safety issues, etc. We can also be reached via social media. Just send a direct message to us via Facebook.

Yes. Your paid admission is good for that day. You must have proof that you have paid for admission to be re-admitted. See a gate agent for details.

No. Only service animals and animals being exhibited in fair venues and events are allowed.

There are no refunds on gate admission, including refunds due to weather. In the event of inclement weather, rides will re-open as soon as it is safe to do so. Motorsports events will continue if possible.

The gate and most vendors only accept cash. There is no ATM at the fairgrounds. Bring enough cash with you for purchases.

Monday through Friday: 6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.
Saturday: 4:30 p.m. to midnight

No. Outside food and drinks are prohibited. Also bottles and containers made of glass are also prohibited because of the hazards they pose if broken.

If you have a question not listed here, reach us on Facebook with a direct message, see someone on the fair board and reach us through the About Us page. We’ll do our best to answer your questions and perhaps add your question here in the future.
