Minutes from Nashville International Airport, Farm Bureau Exposition Center, formerly known as Wilson County Expo, is located right off I-40 at the James E. Ward Agricultural Center. The municipally owned, 275-acre property encompasses three flexible-use properties that host over 1 million visitors each year for outstanding indoor and outdoor special events. Farm Bureau Exposition Center features diverse entertainment and events for the enjoyment of all interests and ages.
Our stellar reputation combined with our support of Tennessee’s agriculture, education, and community involvement encouraged a partnership with a like-minded organization. In 2020, Tennessee Farm Bureau Federation purchased the naming rights to our center with a $225,000 agreement and coined our facility as Wilson County’s Voice of Agriculture. Farm Bureau’s vision, “Working together to build strong agricultural communities,” is instilled in the foundation of this facility and resonates with the values planted in our community.
Although much has changed since our humble beginning, our facility continues to embrace its southern roots and community-minded foundation. Our grounds are home to the nationally acclaimed Wilson Country - Tennessee State Fair. With seven uniquely appointed buildings, existing entertainment stages, multiple green spaces, and 2 ATMs onsite, Farm Bureau Exposition Center and the adjoined James E . Ward Ag Grounds are equipped to host festivals, fairs, and other large events.
Nestled in the signature rolling hills of Middle Tennessee, our 79,000-square-foot facility is a landmark — a modern expression of Wilson County’s southern charm and character.
