Tennessee Valley Fair

3301 East Magnolia Avenue
Knoxville, TN 37914



Knoxville simply must have a Fair!” From these words - more or less - the Tennessee Valley Fair was born. In our humble beginnings over 100 years ago, the Fair scene was quite different – attire, technology, transportation, entertainment. At the same time, the Fair scene was quite familiar to today – agriculture, rides, food, fun, and making memories. That’s the magic of the Fair: it’s a place that is new yet familiar. A place where you make memories and reminisce all at once.

Over 100 years ago, Knoxvillians dreamed of having a Fair spectacular showing off our East Tennessee heritage and talents. To this day, the Tennessee Valley Fair has kept that dream alive. Thousands of people have their hands in making a wonderful event happen while thousands of fairgoers set their sights on enjoying a September day.
