Livestock superintendents and County Fair representatives from all over the Northeast Arkansas district are meeting today in Jonesboro. They’re discussing changes to Livestock and Home Crafts rules and regulations. Today’s meetings mark the beginning of work on the 2012 NEA District Fair Catalog, which is distributed all over Northeast Arkansas to exhibitors and fairgoers alike.
NEA Fair volunteers and employees work with The Sun to produce a comprehensive guide to the exhbition of livestock and crafts, as well as a complete schedule of Fair activities.
The last building at the Old Fairgrounds has come down and we’ve officially “moved” to the new location. The NEA District Fairgrounds’s new address is 7001 E. Johnson Avenue. We’ve added a Location page with a map of the new Fairgrounds. Read more ›
We’ve had another good year at the NEA District Fair and it’s all thanks to the people and businesses of Northeast Arkansas. Without the help of countless local businesses, we wouldn’t have been able to pull it off and without the visits from so many people, we wouldn’t have had a reason to. We look forward to doing it again next year at the new Fairgrounds location.
The “Old Faigrounds” is still in use and we’ll be updating our Facebook page with updates on the comings and goings.
