Indiana State Fair 2017 - History:

The Indiana General Assembly passed an act proposed “to encourage agriculture” growth in the state in February 1851 and the agriculture promoter was Governor Wright at that time which also comprised the development of a State Board of Agriculture. The main and primary purpose of this board was to organize an Indiana State Fair. Finally the dream comes true, The First Indiana State Fair was held in October 20-22 1852 on the grounds of Military Park which is west of Downtown Indianapolis, but after the 8 years, the new location was recognized for State Fair in 1860 at the Alabama Street, north of city and the area was approximately 38 acres. The rank of Indiana State Fair is 6th in the category of annual Statewide Agriculture Fair. The Indiana State fairgrounds were rehabilitated into Camp Morton during the American Civil War. During the war years, in Indiana fairgrounds, no state fair was held but it was held again in 1865 at the Fort Wayne. For the First Time, On September 19th, 1892 the gates opened at the Indiana State Fairgrounds on the East 38th street and since then, Indiana State Fair has been constantly held in Indianapolis.
