Bye Bye State Fair
The Tennessee State Fair is no more
So what killed the Tennessee State Fair?
Regionalism is a huge part of the problem, of course. East Tennessee has the Tennessee Valley Fair as its popular regional agricultural exhibition, and people in this area would just as soon drive to Knoxville to a fair just as large or larger than the State Fair as they would drive all the way to Nashville for an exhibition of similar, or now lesser quality. West Tennessee also has the closer West Tennessee State Fair for people in that part of the State.
