Some states use the terms interchangeably, which begs the question, what’s the difference? As the names imply, one is usually smaller. Technically speaking, and in general, a county fair is smaller than a state fair. 

County fairs usually have permanent structures, too, frequently on “county fairgrounds” (aptly named!). County fairs usually run for 2 to 4 days, orchestrated by a volunteer staff.

State fairs require more real estate, but not always permanent buildings. They last 7 days to a month, and are run by a paid staff. State fairs often include exhibits or competitors who won categories at county fairs.
