Enjoyed country summer concert series in the fairgrounds annex. Great location for a concert. No bad seat in the facility. Just the perfect size to make you feel closer to the artist.

This is a great example of a local fair. Lots of things to do and see! Sweet tea with cheap refills for life with the cup; pig races; butterfly interaction; giant turkey legs; old-timey music and craft demonstrations; rides and games and so much more!

The first week in October is always the Dixie Classic Fair, and it's a favorite family tradition. Lots of rides, exhibits, food and games. I recommend taking little ones before 5:00 due to the crowds.
