The Tennessee Valley Fair Foundation was officially established in 2018 and is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The mission of the Foundation is to preserve East Tennessee’s heritage by promoting agricultural awareness, supporting educational programs, and cultivating youth development. The Foundation generates funds for scholarships, teaches our youth about the importance of agriculture, and gives back to the community in other meaningful ways.
For the past century, the Tennessee Valley Fair has been an outlet for the young people of our community to showcase their talents. Establishing the Foundation will allow us to generate even more opportunities for post-secondary education for our competition winners.
By benefiting the Foundation through events such as the Cotton Candy Classic 5k or simply by contributing a donation, you can support the Foundation and our community’s exceptional youth. We need your support, so we can continue to offer the traditions and experiences that only the Tennessee Valley Fair can provide.
