The Greater Baton Rouge State Fair
Thursday, October 24, 2013 - Sunday, November 03, 2013
The Baton Rouge State Fair pulls out all the stops this year with rides galore in the Carnival Midway and live music nightly featuring gospel, rock, bluegrass, blues and zydeco. Clowns and magicians amble about while fair-goers feed on delicious fair food. The Farm Experience provides cow-milking, chicken-hatching, and animal-petting opportunities. 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.
