Summer Fairs in the Southeast

Step right up! Rides, pageants, livestock and more

See the blue-ribbon-winning chicken. Feed baby goats. Share a funnel cake. Wander through the fun house. Wave to the pageant’s royalty. Set down your sweet tea and take a swirl on the carnival rides. Exploring a local fair is a classic way to spend a summer day or night. I’ve rounded-up some with this list. Please let me know if I’ve missed your favorite. wendy@festivalrooster.com
