     2015 ACF Fact sheet

This October marks the 48th year for our Autauga County Fair.  This community event was rescued three years ago when a new Autauga County Fair Organization was formed in an effort to keep this tradition going.  Who are we?

  • We are ALL volunteers and have NO paid employees. 
  • We offer free booth space to all non-profit and youth groups and believe in supporting the efforts of volunteers in programs throughout our community. 
  • We use the money earned from these events to pay for the expenses associated with hosting a fair, for the entertainment provided, and donate to various non-profit volunteer and youth groups who help us host Autauga County Fairs.
