Despite rumors to the contrary, the Greater Jacksonville Agricultural Fair has not moved from its traditional fairgrounds next to EverBank Field.

Gayle Hart, the fair's marketing director, said she's been flooded with calls since a story ran in the Times-Union last month saying the fair was considering a move to a Westside location.

"We've been getting like 30 calls a day, people asking where the fair is going to be," Hart said.

She said the fair might move one day, but it isn't going to happen soon.

"It's a possibility," she said. "A lot of things could happen. But we'll be in the same place this year and the same place next year."

This year's fair starts today, right where it's always been. It will still have rides and racing pigs and livestock shows and fried stuff on a stick.

Daily admission is still $8, and there are still deals on admission and rides every day. And the concerts are still free (unless you want to sit in the VIP section, which costs an extra $10
