Fair History

        The Gibson County Fair was organized through the        

Legislative Act of 1855, which encouraged every county in       

Tennessee to hold agricultural fairs in the fall of each year.     

Our first fair was held in October of 1856, and had no Ferris    

Wheels or Polish Sausages, but included entries of yokes of    

oxen, barrels of flour, and homespun cotton and clothing.       

Our fair was not held during the Civil War and first years of     

Reconstruction but started again in 1869 and has not missed  

a year since, making Gibson County's the oldest continuously  

running fair in the South.
