Mississippi State Fair to Open Wednesday

Mary Apel

A message from the Commissioner of Agriculture and Commerce:

“On behalf of the Mississippi State Fairgrounds and the Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce, I welcome you and your family to the 162nd Mississippi State Fair!

We are proud to bring you the Mississippi State Fair, October 6-17, 2021, a 12-day event of magical fun and entertainment.

Once again, we have transformed the 105-acre campus at the fairgrounds into an outdoor amusement park filled with all your favorite fair foods, carnival rides, games, shows and contests…all in a safe and functional manner. As before, you can continue to expect hand sanitizing stations, an expansive layout and other safeguards that will allow you and your family to safely enjoy the Fair to the fullest.

During the 2021 Mississippi State Fair, spectators and participants can find excitement in numerous livestock shows and musical entertainment for all ages from headliner artists, the Zerbini Family Circus, a new Firefighter Challenge featuring local and national firefighters, and of course, the longstanding tradition of the Biscuit Booth. Dedicated employees of the Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce will be handing out complimentary homemade biscuits every night.

New to the Fair this year is the addition of the first-ever ‘Mississippi Frontier Village,’ an outdoor area featuring western-style vendors, exhibits, and entertainment!
