Can I bring my pet?

Can I ride my bicycle?
 Due to the extreme volume of people that attend the Warren County A&L Fair, bicycles, roller blades, skates, skate boards, or anything of the sort are prohibited. Foot traffic only is permitted on the fairgrounds.

What about a golf cart?
 For safety reasons, no motorized traffic is allowed on the Fairgrounds. This includes golf carts, UTVs, ATVs, dirt bikes, scooters, mopeds, etc. Personal motorized wheelchairs for disabled persons are, however, allowed. Only motorized traffic from vehicles operated (or escorted) by Fair staff members or authorized emergency vehicles shall be permitted to move about the grounds.

Is there handicap parking located inside the center ring?
 Unfortunately, there is not. Due to the extreme volumes of pedestrian traffic experienced by the Warren County A&L Fair, it is simply not safe to allow vehicles to move in and out of the ring or unescorted about the grounds. Reserved parking for persons with disabilities is clearly marked and located in close proximity throughout the grounds. Visit our Parking Information page to learn more. If you require special assistance, notify a Fair staff member or contact (931) 668-3013 and every reasonable effort will be made to assist you.

How do I apply for a job at the Fair?

Occasionally, the carnival provider may utilize local labor at their discretion for various purposes. Contact the carnival office, located on the Midway, for more information.
