Our Story

Come join the FUN! The midway opens Wednesday, October 14th thru Sunday, October 19th. The fairgrounds are located on Hwy 71 South next to the State Evacuation Shelter, 8149 Hwy 71 South right past the LSU-A campus. This year will have added 1,320 extra parking spaces on the grounds You can ride the trolley free of charge and get dropped off at the fair grounds.

Arts and Crafts entries will be take on Tuesday, October 13, 2020, at the State evac Shelter from 11am to 6pm.

Tons of food vendors with every type of food you can imagine, rides, games and more for all ages. Schlotzsky's Bakery and Cafe will be one of our inside vendors again this year serving up their delicious sandwiches and gourmet pizzas.

A new carnival area gate fee will be implemented this year for the first time. The admission fee is just $2 for ages 6 and up. No charge for ages 5 and under. The fee will promote a secure fairgrounds experience, with the goal of maintaining a family-friendly atmosphere from morning to closing time. You may leave the fenced area and return at no charge on the same day—just get a stamp from the ticket taker as you leave, or you may use your carnival armband for same-day re-admission to the secure area.

GREAT FAIR..GREAT FOOD.TONS OF FUN!!!!!.GREAT WEATHER!!! HURRY BACK2020!!!!!😘😘😘😘😘
Little Jimmy's of Alexandria We're Open Flavors Today: *Peach * Watermelon * Green Apple * Banana Specials: Fancy Peach Rainbow Banana Twin Rainbow
Charging and admission fee not to sight about l,heard that wed, thurs, and friday didnt do so well plus not whole lot of rides there were more booths
Please clarify on the food bank donation for the discount. Is three canned or rice/beans items enough per person? thanks. Attending tomorrow.
we love the fair but they had plenty of parking in the parking lot and they had a lot of cars parking on the road that is an accident ready to happen because if the car swerves what are those cars will get hit but I do like it better where it is
Had an awesome time. We came from Ville Platte.
Does anyone know if the wristband rides end at 6, or are they good all night?
To whomever started charging to get in to the fair,it's not worth it.i bet if y'all keep charging y'all will lose business,if u charge bring better rides or cut the price of tickets
Can someone post when the fair closes on Friday, when it opens and closes on saturday and same for Sunday. I cant find this information.
What are prices for arm bands saturday? And are yall accepting canned goods for discount?
Where do you get the date night stickers?
