Events at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds

The Tennessee State Fairgrounds has made many improvements to the grounds and services this past year. Our special shows, such as the Lawn and Garden show and Christmas village exceeded our expectations in the number of people and the vendors selling goods. Our Flea Market has enjoyed good weather this year, making it an enjoyable outing for the whole family. Racing is a part of the Tennessee State Fairgrounds that continues to add to our variety of shows that are offered to the public.

The influx of new customers and vendors has seen our revenues increase. This will help our ability to improve services and the buildings at the Fairgrounds to better serve our clients and customers.
