The 46th annual Four State Farm show returns this year after being canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic. KRPS’s Fred Fletcher-Fierro has more.
Last July, the Farm Show was canceled for the second time, after it was postponed in May of 2020. The show has a new home, the Plaster Center on the East side of Pittsburg State University, in Pittsburg, Kansas. The show was previously held on a 300-acre farm just outside of town. More than 750 indoor and outdoor vendors will be on-hand at the Farm Show this year, the largest turnout in the event’s history. Also, for the first time in 36 years, attendees will be able to visit indoor booths and enjoy the AC of PSU’s Plaster Center.
While the Farm Show historically has been an agriculture-only event, the addition this year of “rural living” exhibit space allows non-agricultural companies the opportunity to reach spectators to reach new customers. Four State Farm show hours are tomorrow from 8 am until 4 pm. And Saturday from 8 until 3. Free admission and parking.
