The Annual Greater Baton Rouge State Fair Is Back and Better Than Ever—Check It Out on Thursday!

With plenty of thrills, chills, and family-friendly entertainment, The Greater Baton Rouge State Fair is a huge Carnival Midway (40+Rides), with great festival food and musical entertainment.

This year, the Greater Baton Rouge State Fair will be held October 24th thru November 23rd. Visitors will enjoy a variety of fun, including strolling clowns and a magician. Kids of all ages can pet farm animals and learn lessons about agriculture in AG-Venture Land including how to milk a cow. Even more, there will be Swifty Swine Racing Pigs. These pigs are busy shakin' the bacon around a 150' oval track all for an Oreo cookie! The winner gets the cookie, the loser gets the crumbs.

Plan to ride rides? Mitchell Brothers and Sons Amusements will provide safe family entertainment. Mitchell Brothers now consist of over 40 portable rides that scale from kiddie rides for young children to major family rides for the intermediate adventurer, to the spectacular rides for the daring.

Anyone who rides the rides must have either individual coupons or a ride wristband. Wristbands may be purchased on the midway for $25.00. Ride coupons are $1.00 each. The number of coupons needed varies from ride to ride. The purchase of a wristband allows you unlimited rides. And, don’t forget all the food! The fair will feature several concessions, like Biloxi Blue, European Cuisine, Jambalaya by Shake, Roly Poly Sandwiches, and Jen’s Cracklins.

Proceeds from the Greater Baton Rouge State Fair are donated back into the Baton Rouge community through grants to organizations involved with children and families. For more information visit www.gbrsf.com or email gbrsf@eatel.net.
