NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Summer fun includes county fairs, but COVID-19 has changed all that. So this year, the Williamson County Fair is going virtual to make sure your family can still get in on the fun.

The 9-day virtual fair starts next month, but there's a lot that kids can do over the next few weeks to compete in some of the fair's events. Organizers felt it was important to continue the community-minded spirit of the Fair despite cancelling the in-person event.

This year, kids can compete in online events. Exhibits are open to kids of Williamson County and surrounding counties in categories such as arts, crafts, photography, textiles, canning, Lego builds, decorated baked goods, horticulture and field crops.

Of course, the fair is for kids of all ages! There are also competitions for the entire family. You can make Family Quarantine Videos and COVID-19 Fashions.

The virtual fair will take place from August 7th until the 15th. But you can start entering competitions through the month of July. All winners will be announced during the virtual fair.
