Gibson County Fair

1242 Manufacturers Row
Trenton, TN 38382


The Gibson County Fair was organized through the Legislative Act of 1855, which encouraged every county in Tennessee to hold agricultural fairs in the fall of each year. Our first fair was held in October of 1856, and had no Ferris Wheels or Polish Sausages, but included entries of yokes of oxen, barrels of flour, and homespun cotton and clothing. Our fair was not held during the Civil War and first years of Reconstruction but started again in 1869 and has not missed a year since, making Gibson County's the oldest continuously running fair in the South.
