The Boyd County Fair began as the dream of a few...a vision for the future and the work of many volunteers.
The fair had very humble beginnings utilizing a vacant field across from Boyd County High School, the the back parking lot of the former Cedar Knoll Galleria, and finally the dream became a full reality when the fair was able to move to the current fairground. The fairgrounds are located just off old US Route 60 West, about one mile from the 181 Exit of I-64 in Coalton, KY.
the dream that began over 30 years ago is now a reality and continues to grow and expand each year. The vision of having a place for the youth of Boyd County to learn responsibility, pride & confidence and showcase their accomplishments is here now. The dream of a place for families to step back in time, when the pace was a little slower and share a week of experiences and memories, that will last a lifetime has arrived. Let us continue to develop the dream and feed the vision that will shape the futures of our children for generations to come
