Williamson County Fair: Aug. 7 – 15, 2015

by |

Fun rides, live entertainment and lots of fun for little kids are on tap for this year's fair!

A week’s worth of festivities awaits your family during the Williamson County Fair, taking place Aug. 7 – 15 at the Williamson Ag Expo Park (4215 Long Lane, Franklin).

There are lots of fun things for your little ones to enjoy like the Children’s Barnyard where they can pet an array of animals from rabbits to goats. There’s a Birthing Pigs exhibit this year. That’s right. A momma pig is going to have piglets, so swing by her area in hopes of seeing her give birth!

The ever-popular Little 1’s Farming interactive area returns. Here, wee ones can have fun playing farmer for a while and learning the process from planting seeds to harvesting to selling their crops (here, it’s in exchange for a frozen treat before you exit).

New this year for families is the Lego Extravaganza. On Saturdays, Aug. 8 and 15, your family can enter as a team and build an original model for a chance at winning a prize. The fair also features several 4-H exhibits, livestock shows, live entertainment and a variety of contests, including the “Sing Your Heart Out” vocal competition for kids on Tuesday, Aug. 11 at 6 p.m.

Returning this year by popular demand is the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist show featuring two Elvis Presley Enterprises-sanctioned winners. This is a show true fans of “The King” won’t want to miss on Saturday, Aug. 8 at 7:30 p.m.

Thirty-nine rides make up the Midway this year, and several are suitable for young kids. Don’t forget the funnel cake! Fair hours are Mon – Fri 6 – 10 p.m., Sat 10 a.m. – 10 p.m., Sun 12 – 10 p.m. (Midway closes later each night). Tickets are $6 adults, $3 ages 6 – 12, free ages 5 and younger. Midway tickets are $1.25 each, and there are special discounts if you buy in bulk. Learn more at 615-794-4386 or williamsoncountyfair.org.
