Entertainment

The Tennessee State Fair strives to bring the best in family friendly entertainment to our guests. This is one of the greatest costs incurred during the operation of the Fair. Grounds entertainment includes racing pigs, logging shows, comedy shows, live bands, bluegrass, and so much more.

Population(s) Served

The Tennessee State Fair appreciates diversity in our guests as well as in our community. It is with this in mind, we have partnered with El Jefe 96.7 to bring Hispanic Day to the Tennessee State Fair on closing day. Each stage is utilized to showcase up and coming bands along with long established, popular Hispanic bands. Attendance in 2015 broke 15,000 for the day.

Population(s) Served

The Tennessee State Fair is a proud supporter of Davidson County Extension's School Gardens program. The Fair offers awards to participants in each category. It is the hope that these competitions will create enthusiasm among the students to do well in working in their gardens.
