The Greater Baton Rouge State Fair
Thursday, October 27, 2016 - Sunday, November 06, 2016
Baton Rouge, La
The Baton Rouge State Fair pulls out all the stops each year with rides galore in the carnival midway and live music almost every night, featuring a variety of genres. Clowns and magicians amble about while fair-goers feed on delicious fair food. Plus there's mutton bustin', lawn-tractor pulls, pig races, and an exotic animal petting zoo. Junior beef, dairy, and goat shows also add to the agricultural theme. It's a Baton Rouge tradition at the Airline Highway Park and Fairgrounds, 17200 Airline Highway. gbrsf.com for details.
