Visit Our Site

The Lincoln County Fair in Fayetteville is one of the top fairs in Tennessee and consistently offers incredible entertainment, thrilling carnival rides, exciting competitions and harness racing. We pride ourselves on providing a safe and friendly environment for family and friends to come together year after year. Agriculture is at the heart of our fair and we showcase it with a variety of livestock shows throughout the week.  We have a fantastic Farmer for a Day Activity where children learn about life on the farm.

Other events during the week include: Sunday afternoon Quarter Horse, Pony and Mule Races; Beauty Contests; New Car Give-Away; Rodeo; Monster Truck Show; Wrestling; Sanctioned Truck and Tractor Pull; and Demolition Derby. Plus there are 4-H Displays, Agriculture Exhibits, Creative Arts Displays and even a Poultry Show and Sale. Oh, we can't forget all the great fair food - so many food booths, so many choices! The Lincoln County Fair is the only place in the great state of Tennessee where you can enjoy five afternoons and one night of harness racing! This action-packed event is unique to our fair and is a tradition of over one hundred years that continues to be a signature feature of The Lincoln County Fair. The Lincoln County Fair Board invites you to visit us in beautiful Fayetteville!
