2019 Arkansas State Fair Second Best Attended Event on Record

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LITTLE ROCK (Oct. 21, 2019) – The Arkansas State Fair finished its 10-day run in Little Rock with a strong weekend showing that set final attendance for this year’s fair at 472,308. That makes the 2019 fair the second best attended fair of all-time.

General Manager Doug White was thrilled with the weekend crowds on Saturday and Sunday.

“Arkansans came out in droves these last two days,” White said. “Our Saturday crowd was 88,696 and Sunday was 42,371. That left us just 798 patrons behind our best year ever in 2015 when we hosted 473,106.”

White continued, “We had nine solid days of sunshine and moderate temperatures and that’s always a recipe for great attendance.”

White thanked fair patrons for their support of the fair’s 80th event.

“We appreciate all of the folks who attended this year’s fair. My staff and I work diligently throughout the year to put together an event that young and old will enjoy. I believe we hit the mark this year,” White confided.

The Arkansas State Fair and Livestock Show is the state’s largest event and among the top 50 fairs and festivals in North America.
