The fair promotes beef cattle, dairy cattle, goats, sheep, hogs, horses, mules and donkeys, row crops, forages, canning, baking, crafts, photography, art, quilts, lots of different types of handmade items, vegetables, flowers, fruits, dogs, cats, AND bees! Something for every fairgoer! The Wilson County Fair aims to promote, encourage and stimulate the civic welfare and betterment of Wilson County and the surrounding geographical area, through the promotion, encouragement, and maintenance of interest in agriculture, labor, industry, recreation, business, commerce, trade, and any other civic function or interest.
