When you think about a county fair you may find yourself cracking a smile recalling
memories of fun experiences you had as a child. The importance of county
fairs dates back to a time when rural folks loved to get together and celebrate. It’s
a time of festivity where youth and community members gather together to display
their best harvest and crafts, along with enjoying long-lasting relationships
and traditions. An air of anticipation, excitement, and high energy surround people
of all ages during a county fair. Youth and adults alike are drawn together to
rekindle friendships, to be together as families, and to show off their achievements.

Experiencing a county fair provides opportunities for all age groups to participate
in areas such as: showing sheep, hogs, goats and cattle in the youth livestock
shows, along with displaying artwork, flowers, quilts, vegetables from the garden
and so much more! Communities are inspired by the efforts of volunteers
who work together to create a cohesive atmosphere that defines a county fair. It
takes a “village” to make a fair happen and so we need you!

What You Can Do to Help with the Macon County Fair?
Become an Exhibitor – Many people don’t realize or think about the fact that

the better as folks love to come to the fair to see things. So, check out our Macon

an education booth.

Get Involved & Volunteer – Time is precious but volunteering your time at the county fair is time well spent. Helping out will enable you to make new acquaintances, discover new opportunities, and unearth the county fair’s importance.

Invite Others to Exhibit & Help Them
