It’s time for the Tennessee State Fair!

    The State Fair has been a Tennessee tradition since 1906.  In the past, Senior Day and Children’s Day were designated on the weekdays to draw people in. School children were even given a day off from school and free admission.  Entertainment has always been a big draw for the fair.  Among the most popular performers have been, Sonny and Cher, Captain and Tenille, ZZ top, Dr. Hook and comedian, Bob Hope.

    Last fall, Metro Nashville Mayor Karl Dean announced that there would be no more fairs held at the old state fairgrounds and that the property would be sold or developed.   The fair this year will be managed by a private group, rather than the government, charged with maintaining the Fair’s historic tradition.  The fair will open on September 10th at the Nolensville Pike fairgrounds but it may be the last fair on this historic site, so don’t miss it!  Tons of events have been scheduled, featuring entertainers, food, agriculture, competitions, and of course, lots of rides!!  Some Must-See events include the Demolition Derby, Dare Devil Stunt Show, Team Green, Xbox 360 and Kenya Safari Acrobats!

    • September 10th: Fair opens at 5pm; Opening Ceremonies!

      A mother a father and two children cannot afford to go to a Titans game
      And any fun in the past its is being. Stop
      our children have nothing to do. No only the streets
      That is sad. I am a grandmother of ten children most of them escaped
      The street they are older
      all the little children cannot afford to go to the Childrens Museum
      What is a parent to do
