Kentucky State Fair Opening Day

By Crystal Staley/Sebastian Kitchen

Today, the Governor thanked the members of the Kentucky State Fair Board for their hard work to design a fair that would keep many traditions alive while also ensuring the safety of Kentuckians. The participants-only Kentucky State Fair opens today and runs until Saturday, Aug. 29. Today, the fair featured 4-H and FFA youth showing dairy cows and goats.

"Although this year's fair looks different, it continues to highlight Kentucky's premiere agriculture and equestrian industries," said Gov. Beshear. "With nearly 76,000 farms and over 240,000 horses in the commonwealth, the state fair has a long history of celebrating the best Kentucky has to offer."
