The annual Tennessee State Fair is underway only four miles away from Lipscomb’s campus at The Fairgrounds Nashville.
The fair has a wide range of exhibits and shows that will be going on through this weekend. Some shows include racing barnyard animals, clowns, ventriloquists, wrestling, acrobats, and even a show about science. There are exhibits where you can see barnyard animals, balloon sculptures, model trains, and a 725-pound pumpkin.
The fair will also be holding competitions this weekend that anyone is allowed to compete in. There will be an apple pie eating contest, bubble gum blowing contest, and a corn hole competition.

There are several rides and games for all ages for an extra fee. Food has a very big presence at the fair. You can get a full-size porkchop on a stick or any meat you can think of really on a stick, funnel cakes, corndogs, or even a fried Goo Goo Cluster on a stick.
The Tennessee State Fair will be going on through this Sunday, September 15th. The fair costs eight dollars at the gate or seven dollars if you pay online. You can buy tickets to the fair through this link https://www.etix.com/ticket/v/9839/tennessee-state-fairgrounds-2019-tennessee-state-fair
