Living in America produces a certain sense of pride—I mean, who isn’t proud to live in the land of the free and the home of the brave? In fact, it’s something that should be celebrated with smiles and memories that last a lifetime.

Starting this weekend, our pride for America the beautiful will be in full effect throughout all of Williamson County. From August 4-12, all of Williamson County will be buzzing about the 13th annual county fair. The theme of this year’s Fair is Country Pride County Wide. There will be country music galore as we celebrate the community of Williamson County and the great nation of the United States of America.

So finish buttering up your prized hog and get Betsy all cleaned up because it’s fair time in Williamson County! You can already smell the sweet aroma of Funnel Cakes, Deep Fried Oreos, and Caramel Apples roam the air as you’re walking around trying to see which ride to ride or which show to watch next. And with this year’s fair, that decision is going to be even harder as now there are even more new rides and attractions.

One of those new attractions is the 4-H & Youth Village that we here at Berry Farms are sponsoring! The 4-H & Youth Village follows the traditional Williamson County Fair’s mold of educational fun through experiential learning. There are various hands on activities that the whole family is going to get a kick out of such as wood stamping, building Popsicle bridges, and learning all about bugs, just to name a few.

The real headliners of the 4-H & Youth Village are the Robotics Challenges that will be held on both Saturdays of the Fair. This is an opportunity to see our youth and future leaders’ creativity as they design functional robots to complete tasks within an obstacle course and compete for cash prizes.

This year’s fair is also dedicated to honoring our veterans, as well as their sacrifice and service. In fact, when providing valid military ID, veterans get in free for this year’s Patriot Day—the final day of the fair, Saturday, August 12. There will also be many other ticket specials and packages available to make this year’s Patriot Day a blast!

Live performances from some pretty special guests will be occurring throughout the entire tenure of the fair. These artists have performed on some of the biggest stages and will surely light up the main stage and really just knock your socks off.

So come on out to the fair from August 4-12 to celebrate America and the Williamson County Community. We can’t wait to see all of the support from the community and for everyone to showcase their Country Pride have a great time!
