A Few Things About the Fair

Students representing numerous 4-H, FFA, and FCCLA organizations across Nacogdoches will be participating at the Pineywoods Fair. There will be competitions in baking, ag mechanics, photography, and arts & crafts. Plus, students will be showing rabbits, broilers, swine, goats, heifers, and lambs.

Saturday, you won't want to miss the always-entertaining Jr. Tractor Pull which is presented by Robison Outdoor Power.  That will get underway at 4 pm.

The community is encouraged to support our Nacogdoches area youth by participating in the sales that happen on Saturday afternoon. The Ag Mechanics sale will get underway at 3 pm, and the premium sale will start at 6 pm.
