Hamilton County Mayor Weston Wamp + other community leaders announced the Little Debbie Hamilton County Fair will return for its second year over Veterans Day weekend.

The fair will once again be held at the historic McDonald Farm in Sale Creek (~30-minute drive from Chattanooga) from Friday, Nov. 8 through Sunday, Nov. 10.

Last year, more than 40,000 visitors came to the 2,100-acre farm, thanks in part to musical performances from Lauren Alaina + Chattanooga-raised country singer Brandon Davis, who will perform again at the fair this year.

The music lineup will also feature singer-songwriter Larry Fleet and 1990s rock band Sister Hazel.

On the activities front, folks can expect:

  • Amusement rides from the Kissel Amusement Co.
  • Food vendors
  • Agricultural exhibits
  • Fair competitions (for agriculture, livestock + poultry)
  • A live rodeo
  • Big Woody’s Lumberjack Shows (think: speed sawing, log rolling + animal log carving)
  • A fireworks show
  • Pie-eating competitions

Bonus: Applications to be a food or arts + crafts vendor are open now.

New to this year, is an improved traffic flow plan which will lead fairgoers to free parking on the farm with direct access to the fairgrounds.

Ticket prices will range from $6-$8 with discounts for active military members, veterans, and teachers. A three-day pass will be available for purchase for $13 in advance + $15 at the gate. Note: Children 10 + under will receive free admission.
