Livestock Show Announced for 2016 Delta Fair

We are excited to announce that the Delta Fair Board has approved a Livestock Show for the 2016 Delta Fair! Yes, that's right, a Livestock Show! You can be part of the very first Delta Fair Livestock Show in over five decades! The show will be held on Wednesday, September 28, 2016, and will be open to all 4-H Clubs and FFA Chapters in Dunklin, Stoddard, and Pemiscot Counties. Animals that may be entered this year include swine, goats, lambs, poultry, and rabbits.

Swine, goat, and lamb classes are limited to market classes only. There will be no breeding classes for the 2016 Fair. Depending on participation and interest, breeding classes may be added in future fairs.

Animals must be owned by Exhibitor by June 15, 2016. Animal Nomination Forms must be turned in by July 15, 2016. Animal registration forms must be mailed (post-marked) by August 15, 2016. Any animals not nominated and/or registered by the due date will not be allowed to show or sell. NO EXPECTATIONS.

Poultry and rabbits must be registered by August 15, 2016.

The nominations and registrations are very important to us, in order to provide facilities. Also, please remember that this is our first livestock show in many years, and we are learning. Please be patient with us. We are also planning on having a premium Sale, so if anyone you know would like to be a sale supporter, please let us know the name of the business and a contact person. Exhibitors may also obtain their own premium buyers, individually.

Rules and Regulations for both the show and the sale, and Nomination and Registration Forms will be available on the Delta Fair website. (

We are very excited about this addition to the Delta Fair. We are looking forward to bringing back the tradition from years ago.
