Lebanon is home to the Wilson County Fair, one of the state’s most popular summer fairs. In fact, more than 500,000 attendees come to the fair each year, making it one of the top 50 fairs in North America in terms of spectators. Southeast Tourism Society has lauded the fair, and Livability ranked it on its Top 10 Summer Fairs list.

For one week in August, the fair takes over the city and hosts everything from eating contests to concerts to a midway full of thrilling rides. Animal shows are a big draw at the Wilson County Fair, and everything on four legs, from bovines to bunnies, get a chance to shine.
