The 2019 Greater Hillsborough County Fair opens Thursday, October 17 for two weekends of fun and entertainment! This year’s theme: Let the Good Times Grow. The fair will run October 17-20 and 24-27. Livestock shows, carnival rides and fair food are a staple at this annual event and the excitement doesn't stop there!
This year’s free entertainment includes:
• Robinson's Racing and Swimming Pigs
• The popular Firefighter Show returns enjoy the show as firefighter extraordinaire Neal Snyder puts his young volunteers through their training.
• The Family Thrill Circus is back with amazing acts for the whole family to enjoy.
The Hillsborough County Fair boasts some of the largest youth livestock shows among county fairs in the southeastern United States. Dairy and beef cattle, rabbits, poultry, sheep, goats and pigs round out an array of more than 800 animals that will be on display and competing in our show ring.
October is spooky season and back by popular demand this year is our haunted hayride. This family-friendly hayride runs Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings.
We’ve packed even more action into our grandstand events this year. Our rodeo will be held on October 18 and 19 complete with bronc riding, barrel racing, bull riding and world famous rodeo clown Hollywood Harris!
Don’t miss Dollar Days at the fair. Thursday, October 17 and 24, fair admission is only one dollar and each carnival ride is one dollar.
From cooking to rug hooking and baking to picture taking, from sowing to growing and animals large and small there's something for everyone at the 2019 Greater Hillsborough County Fair.
Let the good times grow and we’ll see you at the fair!
