carroll-county-fair-adEstablished in 1952, the Carroll County Fair will mark its 62nd Anniversary in 2014. Who knew back then when Charlie Schell and his family provided the land east of Milledgeville, also known as Schell Park, that the Carroll County Fair would still be the great fair it is today.

To all past, present and future participants, officers, superintendents and volunteers, “Thank You” for your time and help to keep this wonderful, fun filled, family oriented county fair going.

Your patronage is very much appreciated, and we hope you will continue to support the Fair for generations to come.
