Grundy County Fair Accepted by TAF, Signs New Contract

Members of the Grundy County Fair Association attended the 96th Annual Tennessee Fair Convention held in Nashville, TN on January 20th 2018. After 12 long years the Grundy County Fair was voted on and accepted back into the Tennessee Association of Fairs during the general business meeting of the TAF. Being a member of the TAF will open many doors for the Grundy County Fair. This will allow us to also win awards and our Fairest of the Fair will be able to compete at the state level. Other County Fair Associations surrounding and across the state were very welcoming and gave helpful advice and assistance if needed with our fair. The Grundy County Fair will debut a new carnival company in 2018. The Grundy County Fair Association has selected James Gang Amusements to provide the rides, games and some food for the 2018 Fair. Founded in 1992, James Gang Amusement Inc. is a family ran carnival from Andalusia, Alabama. James Gang Amusements is famous for providing great rides, honest games of skill, and extraordinary midway food. Whether you visit during the day or night, your experience will be filled with joy, laughter, and fun times. Guests enjoy the smell of freshly popped popcorn and Hot and ready Polish and Italian sausage ready to be covered by freshly cooked onion and peppers, as well as the sights and sounds of our rides. At night James Gangs midway comes to life with thousands of LED lights that can be seen from miles away. At James Gang Amusements our goal is to create a family friendly atmosphere by providing the best midway out there with professionally trained employees. We take great pride in our relationships with the local charities and fair associations that sponsor our events and with the great communities that invite us to be a part of their celebrations. Safety at James Gang Amusement is a top priority. Prior to opening, each piece of equipment is carefully inspected by a skilled midway manager and a ride superintendent using an inspection checklist. Each winter, we work extensively repairing, repainting, and refurbishing our equipment at our full service winter quarters facility in Andalusia Alabama. This years fair will be bigger with more exciting rides. We hope to have a website up and running very soon with lots of information, applications and forms. We have a great musical line up for this year. A new and improved car show, Fairest of the Fair Beauty Pageant, and new exhibits such as, Grundy County History, Christmas Corner are just a couple. Also, a new ride added this year is the Y Factor, it will be the biggest ride to ever hit the Grundy County Fair Midway. The dates for the fair have been set for August 20th thru 25th 2018 The Grundy County Fair Horse Show will be August 18th 2018. If anyone would like to volunteer, have suggestions or comments you can email that association at The members of the Grundy County Fair Association invite you and your family to come and make memories at the 85th Grundy County Fair. We hope to see you there.
