The first fairgrounds, created after the Civil War, included a half-mile track, a grandstand that seated 3500 and an amphitheater that held 7500. According to J. M. "Mun" Robertson, a former fair official, on the closing day of the fair 15,000 area citizens typically crowded into the grounds to attend horse races and bicycle races, cattle shows, exhibits of baked, pickled and canned goods, needlework and other offerings. During World War II the grounds were abandoned.In 1952 the fair was revived. Today the Southern Kentucky Fair is held in Lampkin Park.
