McCracken County Fair
Held at Carson Park Fairgrounds in Paducah each
June since 1894, this event features harness racing, car racing,
horse shows, a midway, and a multitude of agriculture, livestock,
and crafts exhibits. In recent years the emphasis has returned to
farm products and the county's agrarian heritage. The fair is
documented in text, photographs, and news clippings.
