Established in 1889 the Neshoba County Fair® fosters political, agricultural, and social exchanges of knowledge and ideas. Home of the state's only licensed horse track since 1922 and the nation's largest campground fair, the fair is “Mississippi's Giant Houseparty®” and was entered on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.
Amusement rides and gaming is provided by Mitchell Bros. and Sons Amusements. Fair goers all ages enjoy their time being whisk away on the rides and enjoying the games that are offered.
The fair cabin is the center of activity for families staying at the fair and the front porch is the most popular place for gathering. Porches are for sitting, visiting and just watching the neighborhood activities.
The Neshoba County Fair is the political forum for the State of Mississippi. State, Local, and on occasion National politicians come to the fair to make their speeches at the Pavilion in Founders Square. News media from around the state converge on the Square to cover the speeches.
