Annually, fairs are assessed based on attendance and calculated with a special patented formula to determine their official ranking. In addition to the nation’s top fairs, the carnivals that provide amusement rides for the fairs are also ranked based on the number of fairs within a given year’s top 50 list that they play.”
“We were blessed with perfect Fair weather, and fairgoers from all of Tennessee’s 95 counties, 37 different states and 14 different countries, with every day but the first Friday breaking daily attendance records,” stated Fair President Randall Clemons. Attendance increased over 60% from 2021 to 2022 thus moving the Fair up from #24 to #22.
