Company Offers Half A Million To Run State Fair

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - There could be a new fight over the state fairgrounds in Nashville.  A company based out of Cordova in West Tennessee is offering half a million dollars to run the state fair this September.

The Tennessee State Fair Association is set to run the big show, but in a letter to Metro Council, Universal Fairs is asking to produce the event.  They are offering $500,000 and a guaranteed $250,000 for an additional two years of production for a total of $1 Million and a three-year commitment.  

The offer will now go before the Fair Board next Tuesday.
