Fairgoers can take an exciting trip around the state without ever leaving the
grounds as they pass through each exhibit, seeing many of the wonderful things
that the commonwealth has to offer.
Every county in Kentucky has a different story to tell, revealing its unique
society and industry in displays of items ranging from historic objects and
crafts to local treasures and commercial commodities. Fairgoers will be able to
learn many interesting and historical facts about the Bluegrass State. Booths
contain information on everything from the lakes of Kentucky to the floral clock
in Frankfort to the birthplace and boyhood home of Abraham Lincoln in Larue
"[Fairgoers] realize there is more to discover in their own backyard,"
said Cheryl Cook, the executive director of Hopkinsville-Christian County
Convention and Visitor's Bureau.
In 2011, 58 counties from around the commonwealth participated and Woodford County
took home the Best Booth Award.
