Many northeastern Oklahoma 4-H and FFA members will be bringing their prize livestock to compete for ribbons and premium money at the upcoming Tri-County Fair in downtown Collinsville, August 25-27th. Approximately 200 4-H and FFA youth from 33 Oklahoma communities exhibited livestock last year. Our local Fair is a great opportunity for first time exhibitors to gain valuable experience in the show ring as they prepare for the larger fall competitions. Make plans to visit the newly renovated American Legion building on Saturday, 9-4 p.m., as craft vendors will be set up for the entire day. Vendor space is available by contacting Kristi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thursday evening the Dog Show will be taking place in the livestock arena with entries being accepted at 6 p.m. and show time around 7 p.m. More information is available on cvilleok.com.
All livestock shows take place in the fair barn arena (10th & Center) and schedules include: Friday/Aug 26, Junior Swine Show, 7 p.m.
Saturday/Aug 27 four shows are scheduled: Rabbit Show begins at 8:30 a.m. (entries accepted 7-8 a.m.) in the southwest corner of the barn. Beef Show is approximately 8:30 a.m. and the Sheep Show is scheduled around 1 p.m. Meat Goat Show will follow the Sheep Show at approximately 5 p.m. Check out cvilleok.com for all show details, rules and regulations.
The 4-H and FFA tractor driving contest will be Saturday, 9 a.m. in front of T & S Plumbing (on Main Street east of railroad tracks). Fair exhibitors and attendees are encouraged to support the Collinsville FFA Alumni as they will be in charge of the fair barn concession stand during all livestock events. Fair t-shirts will be for sale in the American Legion building on Saturday. At present, the shirts are available at The Feed Store, 13810 N 113th E Ave, Collinsville.
