Known as one of the top fairs in the USA, Wilson County Fair is held every August at the James E. Ward Agriculture Center in Lebanon, Tennessee. It's a fun-filled experience where both adults and children can play, compete, eat, watch, listen, and laugh. The fair showcases Tennessee agriculture promoting and displaying beef and dairy cattle, goats, sheep, horses, donkeys, row crops, vegetables, flowers, fruits, dogs and cats, bees, and various arts and crafts. Wilson County fair opening hours are at 5 p.m. on Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. on Saturdays and noon on Sundays.

The fair was founded in 1979 by Wilson County Promotions. In addition to agricultural, educational, and commercial exhibits, it offers live music concerts, motorsports, carnival rides and food concessions. Visitors can also stroll through Fiddlers Grove Historic Village to step back in time and learn how early settlers used to live.

During nine days, Wilson County Fair offers the most thrilling rides, tastiest foods, country music, tractor pulls, demolition derbies, beauty pageants, and shopping.
