The 2018 Wilson County Fair with the theme Magic Memories will celebrate the Year of Milk. With this, the fair has purchased The Incredible Milking Cow which is a life size cow that moo’s and children can milk. The cow will be featured in Hometown USA in the Expo Center each day of the Fair as part of the Pick Tennessee Product section. It is a unique experience for children as they milk the cow and it is mooing while this occurs. The Wilson County Fair Board had a naming contest and the cow has been named Buttercup. Homestead USA at the fair will feature school exhibits from each school in Wilson County, Vegetable Competitive Exhibits, Rose Exhibits, Baking Exhibits, Egg Competition Exhibit, a display of rare antique John Deere Tractors as part of the 100 Anniversary of John Deere, a community park, and the Hometown Stage. The Hometown Stage will feature daily entertainment of music, demonstrations of culinary arts, history, recreation, shopping and much more.
The Expo Center is a great new addition to the fair last year and will again be the home of all the Pageants which will include Baby Shows, Fair Princess, King of the Fair, Doll Parade, and Fairest of the Fair. It will also again be the location of the competitive home economics exhibits, photography, art, and stained glass.
