the fair is back in 2021!

August 24th - 28

The Poinsett County Agricultural Fair has celebrated our Poinsett County’s agriculture heritage, community values, and family-focus for more than 140 years.  Sadly, in 2020, the fair was cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions.  Thankfully, this year it is back on schedule!  

This year's fair theme is, "From Pioneer Days to Modern Ways".

We encourage all visitors to observe safety rules and regulations regarding social distancing due to the current situation with COVID-19.   By staying safe we can all have fun!

Thank each of you for your continued support.  We look forward to seeing you at the Fair!
