The Tennessee State Fair is being canceled this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, but it will be back in September 2021. State Fair Manager Scott Jones said in a news release Monday that the Tennessee State Fair Association met twice last week to discuss what to do about this year’s fair, which was scheduled for Sept. 11-20. He said there was concern about meeting health care restrictions and recommendations, especially with a smaller space as a result of construction of the new soccer stadium. Fair officials said plans are in the works for some activities to be open.
As of now the Coffee County Fair is still taking place Sept. 19-26. Remember Bonnaroo takes place the same week Sept. 24-27.
