It’s that time of year, again, when officials with the Hunt County Fair and Livestock Show get ready for this year’s event.

Set for April 19-28, 2019, this year’s fair promises to be a good one with a new multipurpose show barn, great bands and musicians on the stage and new children’s attractions. 

According to its mission statement, the purpose of the Hunt County Fair and Livestock Show is to conduct an annual celebration of youth, agricultural, educational, economic, cultural and institutional strengths indigenous to our area with a special emphasis on agriculture.

The fair will offer various forms of affordable entertainment and amusement for families and friends, and showcase the talents, skills and aspirations of our youth.

It will also promote agricultural growth and awareness through educational programs, competitions in breeding and showing of livestock, and by promoting and supporting the education of local children by providing scholarships.

This year’s music lineup promises to be a lot of fun.

On Friday, The Randy Rogers Band with opener Chris Colston; Saturday, Roger Creager with opener 30 Miles East; Sunday Church bands; April 23, The Blandelles; April 24, Bart Crow with opener Read Southall Band; April 25, Mike Ryan with opener Zach Romo Band; April 26, John Michael Montgomery with opener Cody Wayne; April 27, Restless Heart with opener Johnny Lee; and April 28, Cinco de Mayo celebration.

The Hunt County Fair is a self-funded 501c3 nonprofit organization, which relies solely on donations from members of the community to make the event possible.
