9 Days of Virtual Fun With The Williamson County Fair

COVID-19 isn't stopping the summer fun.

Have you herd?

Even though the 2020 Williamson County Fair has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, that doesn’t mean you can’t get your “fair fix” and experience the festivities in a new way!

This year, the Williamson County Fair is going virtual. Organizers felt it was important to continue the community-minded spirit of the Fair despite cancelling the in-person event.

From Friday, August 7 through Sunday, August 15, celebrate Williamson County's agricultural heritage with 9 days of online fun, education and entertainment.

Exhibits are open to kids of Williamson County and surrounding counties in categories such as arts, crafts, photography, textiles, canning, Lego builds, decorated baked goods, horticulture and field crops.
