The Williamson County Fair Pageants will take place at the new Performing Arts Center at Academy Park–the home of the former Battle Ground Academy campus– on Sunday, August 6th.

“We are so excited to partner with the Williamson County Parks & Recreation Department to utilize this new venue, which provides contestants with professional staging, lighting and dressing rooms,” said Pageant Chair Suzanne Ware. “It is sure to be an elegant experience for our contestants.”

The Williamson County Fair Pageants have traditionally been held at the Main Stage on the Arena Floor. However, the Main Stage is being replaced this year with the 4-H and Youth Village, featuring hands-on activities for kids– big and small– as well as highlighting the talents of local youth in various competitive exhibits.

In addition to the new venue, the Williamson County Fair will be awarding a $250 savings bond this year to each new title holder–with the exception of Baby/Toddler Divisions. Each pageant contestant will take home a crown and a rose.

The Williamson County Fair Pageants will begin at 2 p.m. on Sunday, August 6th with the Babies and Toddlers division and will end with the completion of the Fairest of the Fair, which begins at 7 p.m.

For audience members, a $3 per person donation is suggested at the door, benefitting Waves, Inc., Early Childhood Education Program.

All participants are required to attend the modeling workshop on Saturday, August 5th, from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Performing Arts Center, located at 112 Everbright Avenue.

Pageant contestants must submit an application along with a $25 entry fee. Applications must be received by the Fair Office at 4215 Long Lane or mailed to P.O. Box 329, Franklin, TN 37065 by Wednesday, August 2nd. Applications and a complete pageant schedule are available online.
