Versailles Fairgrounds Wednesday, July 12th – Saturday, July 15th
The Morgan County Fair has been an annual tradition of family-friendly fun since 1938. It was first sponsored by the Versailles Lions Club and took place around the Versailles Courthouse Square. When the Lions Club formed the Morgan County Agricultural and Mechanical Society in 1940, they took over as the official Fair Board and moved the location to the Fairground (purchased in 1942). The Fair Board is currently working on replacing two fairground buildings that date back to the late 1940s and early 1950s with an updated building by the time of the 2017 fair. You’ll want to bring the whole family to check out the new grand stand events and expanded free attractions at this year’s fair!
