The 150th Annual Robertson County Fair Begins August 21

(FULL SCHEDULE)

The Annual Robertson County Fair Kicks off Monday August 21 and this year is the 150th year anniversary. The fair will begin with it’s annual parade on Memorial blvd in Springfield at 5pm, right after the historical 2017 Eclipse (see story and local viewing events – click here) The Fair Board members have worked hard over the last year to make many changes and improvements to the fairgrounds and the fair itself.

The Robertson County Fair Association is a non-profit organization that is completely self-supporting and is run solely by volunteers.

Since its establishment in 1938, the Robertson County Fair Association has celebrated all things Robertson County by promoting agriculture, education, and community involvement through quality entertainment in a family-friendly environment.

As a non-profit organization, the Fair Association serves as an advocate for the community through its commitment to preserving the fairgrounds, continuing our annual county fair, as well as providing a variety of entertainment and programs through our many other events.

On that note, they would like to remind everyone that the Robertson County Fair is not just the carnival rides. The Robertson County Fair is everything including the carnival. It’s the arena events, the entertainment at the stage, all the entries from locals (i.e. Baking, crafts, art, photography, canning, tobacco, etc…). It’s about our community coming together. It’s about the 4-H, FFA and FCCLA kids being proud of the work they have done and showcasing the items and animals they have worked hard at creating or raising. So please stop in the Main Exhibit Building and check out all their hard work, they would really appreciate it.
