It is County Fair Time in Meigs County, Tennessee
The Meigs County Fair is quickly approaching. The gates open at 5:00 pm, Wednesday,
Thursday and Friday – September 9th, 10th and 11th
and on Saturday September 12th the gates open at 3:00 pm.
Welcome to the Fair!
If you plan to attend the Meigs County Fair you will be
pleased to know that there is no admission fee.
If you want the little ones to go on the rides you will have to buy
tickets at the booth near the rides.
The Fair Grounds in Meigs County are located near the
Meigs County Elementary School in Decatur.
There will be signs on Hwy. 58 in Decatur indicating where to turn. Decatur isn’t very big so you can’t miss it!
Last year my husband and I both had entries in the
canning venue. I also entered 6
photographs. I didn’t win a prize for
the photos but two of them did make it to the display board. It was a lot of fun looking at all the photos
and we have some talented photographers in our little county. My photo of Miss Ruby in her floatie made it to the board!
My husband, at my urging, entered a quart of his famous
pickled green tomatoes. I entered a pint
of my not so famous stewed tomatoes. It
was a quick process to get the items entered which was good because it was very
hot that day.
The following day we went as soon as the fair opened to
see if we had won. My husband almost
fell over when we spotted his pickled green tomatoes with a first place blue
ribbon! I was also jumping for joy when
I realized my stewed tomatoes won a second place and the jar was sporting a red
Pickled Green 'Maters!
It was very exciting for a former city girl to win a
ribbon at a county fair! I was so
excited I didn’t realize we were to pick up our checks the day we picked up our
items. We had to go hunting for them
Last year it was very hot and humid during the Fair, be prepared for that. Dress
in cool clothing and be sure to stay hydrated.
Check out all the winning entries and other festivities! Enjoy yourself at the Meigs County Fair. Maybe we’ll see you there!
