Tennessee State Fair Signs 5-Year Lease At Fairgrounds

Tennessee State Fair Signs 5-Year Lease At Fairgrounds

CREATED Jun 7, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A new lease was signed Saturday, ensuring the Tennessee State Fair will remain at the Fairgrounds for at least five more years.

The announcement was made in front of a crowd of volunteers at the State Fairgrounds.

In the past, the state fair signed only year-long leases giving organizers only 60 days to plan the Tennessee State Fair.

Organizers said this longer lease will allow the fair to expand in many more ways.

“Having a longer contract allows us to invite venders back for years to come, so vendors are more enthusiastic about being at the Tennessee State Fair. There's more stability there,” said Kinsey Emery, a volunteer at the fair.

The Tennessee State Fair has been scheduled to run from September 5 through the 14.
