The Greater Baton Rouge State Fair is bringing back three (3) of the most popular attractions:

      • Pages Globe of Death Motorcycle Stunt Show
      • Swifty Swine Pig Racing
      • Noah's Way Exotic Animal Petting Zoo

There will be plenty of that great fair food and the largest midway in south Louisiana with rides and games for children of all ages.

“We feel that it is important for us to have an event this year,” said fair chairman, Cliff Barton.  “The covid virus kept us from opening last year but with the numbers going down now. and after all that Baton Rouge has gone through, it is time for the public to have some family fun.” 

As always the proceeds from the fair are donated back into the community in the form of grants, scholarships, and sponsorships.  The fair foundation has donated over 4.2 million dollars since beginning this program in 1987.
