Celebrating the Bounty of our County!

About Us

The Johnson County Fair has been held for over 183 years.  Our fair first started in 1838 on the property at Martin Place in Franklin.  The current fairgrounds location at 144 and US 31 was purchased by the county in 1888. We have been there ever since - in the heart of Franklin, Indiana. 


A history of the fairgrounds is coming soon...
