Thunderstorms passing through put a damper on the fair Tuesday night, delaying the Great Giveaway vehicle drawing for 30 minutes. The ticket barrel was placed underneath the announcers’ booth at the Motosports Arena to protect the tickets from the rain, as 2017 Fairest of the Fair Anna Belle Gallaher commenced the drawing.

Randall Clemons, President of the Wilson County Fair, shared about Tony Bates and Bates Ford in front of the largest crowd in fair concert history. Tony Bates has taken our fair to another level in the last ten years as Bates Ford has sponsored two nights of musical concerts. Tony has a great community spirit and gives back to Wilson County in countless ways. Eddie Stubbs from WSM Radio mentioned that a ticket to a concert like this would easily cost $25.00 and thanks to Tony Bates & Bates Ford's wonderful sponsorship, we can experience it for the price of fair admission! The Wilson County Fair is one of the Top 50 Fairs in the nation due to great sponsorships like Bates Ford.
