Kentucky State Aid to Local Agricultural Fairs Program
Kentucky Department of Agriculture
Division of Shows and Fairs


The Kentucky State Aid to Local Agricultural Fairs Program came into being in 1962, created by an act of the General Assembly. The program is designed to promote local agricultural fairs through grants of
State funds.
The commissioner of Agriculture has charge of the Aid to Fairs Program, and it is administered by the Department of Agriculture’s Division of Shows and Fairs. The Commissioner is advised on matters concerning the administration of the program by the Kentucky Fair Council, a group composed of various government and agricultural leaders. Grants made to local agricultural fairs through the program are calculated on a matching funds basis with each dollar of State funds being matched with funds from the local area. The amount of any grant is based on the amount spent by the local fair board in four qualifying areas. These areas include 1) The Agricultural Premium Program; 2) the Horse Events Premium Program; 3) the Building Program, and 4) the Harness Horse Racing Program.
 Agricultural Premium Program
The Agricultural Premium Program assists fairs in paying premiums and awards on agricultural related exhibits, shows, and contests. Fairs may receive up to $4,500 per year on a matching basis for these approved classes.
Horse Events Premium Program
The Horse Events Premium Program assists fairs in paying premiums and awards for any shows, contests, or other events that primarily involve horses (harness horse racing is not included, as it receives aid through a separate program). Fairs may receive up to $2,000 per year on a matching basis for approved horse events classes.
Harness Horse Racing Program
The Harness Horse Racing Program assists fairs in paying purses for harness racing. Fairs may receive up to $5,000 per year on a matching basis for harness racing, with a maximum of $750/race being matched by State funds. Local agricultural fairs must meet various requirements of the Department of Agriculture in order to qualify for these grants of State funds. A summary of these requirements is available by writing to the
Division of Shows and Fairs, Kentucky Department of
Agriculture, 500 Mero Street, Floor 7,
Frankfort, KY 40601; phone - (502)-564-4983.
