All The Details You Need To Know About The Cumming Fair {2018}

2018 Cumming Fair in Forsyth County

Just thinking about the fair makes my mouth water for all the delicious fair food – cotton candy, fresh popcorn, funnel cakes, giant turkey legs, and don’t forget about the deep-fried Snickers or Oreos. The calories eaten at the Fair don’t count, right?

We can’t forget about the rides and games! The famous James H. Drew Exposition returns with the world’s most progressive midway. The Cumming Fair & Festival brings over 40 rides and numerous games. It really is fun for all!

The daily attractions are taking place at different times/days. Please scroll down and review each of them. {TIP: If I know my family wants to see a particular show, I make sure it will be taking place on the day we go.
