Summer may be on its way out but that doesn't mean all the fun is over! The 2018 Greater Gulf State Fair is just around the corner: October 26th through November 4th, 2018.
The Greater Gulf State Fair may be fairly young, as state fairs go, but what it lacks in age, it makes up for in size and fun! The event may only 63 years old but it has the distinction of being Alabama's largest state fair.
The fair runs for a full ten days, transforming The Grounds into a miniature city. It has its own power grid, police and medical control center, restaurants, and more.
Over 100,000 people come to the Greater Gulf State Fair every year. While it was created to serve of people of Lower Alabama, Lower Mississippi, and the Panhandle of Florida (thus the name) visitors are more than welcome to join in!
