the fair is back in 2022!

September 8-10

The Poinsett County Agricultural Fair has celebrated our Poinsett County’s agriculture heritage, community values, and family-focus for more than 140 years.  Sadly, this year we have been unable to secure a carnival. We are working on other options that would take the place of rides. Please check the site regularly for any updates.

We encourage all visitors to check out the Exhibit Building, Livestock, Vendors, and then make your way over to the Rodeo.

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