Franklin County Agricultural Fair Planning Committee
In 2011, a committee formed under the direction of the former Department of Commerce and Leisure Services to explore the idea of bringing back the county agricultural fair, which had previously ended in the 1970s. Shortly after, the Franklin County Board of Supervisors showed support for the initiative and encouraged the department to continue development.
On December 17, 2013, the Board of Supervisors voted unanimously in favor of plans to officially revive the Franklin County Agricultural Fair at the Franklin County Recreation Park. The fair returned after a 40 year hiatus in September 2014. This year’s 6th annual event will be held Wednesday, September 18 through Saturday, September 21, 2019.
Prices, policies, programs, schedules, attractions and entertainment subject to change or cancellation without notice. No Rainchecks. No Refunds. No weapons, guns or knives allowed at the event. The Franklin County Agricultural Fair and/or County of Franklin reserves the right to refuse admission.
