Nothing spells S-U-C-C-E-S-S in a southern, agricultural county quite like the continuation and growth of the county fair.
This year, thanks to the Temple Hill Lions Club, Barren County the fair will offer festivities for the 68th consecutive year, when many local county fairs are hanging on by a thread.
This year the fair will be held June 28 – July 2, and as always is sponsored and organized by the Temple Hill Lions Club. Admission Tuesday-Friday is $10, and $15 Saturday and Sunday. The ever-popular and timeless carnival rides that have fallen by the wayside in some counties will open at 6 p.m. on the 28th. The selection of rides and carnival games is extensive.
Pageants, an ATV rodeo, catfish RC car racing, a truck/tractor pull, wrestling, and a corn hole tournament are amongst the events offered this year.
As always the fair is held at the fairgrounds, at 10168 Tompkinsville Road near Temple Hill. There will be numerous options for eats each night.
