2014 Anson Ag Expo &
Fair September 26-27

Mark your calendars for this year’s annual Anson Ag Fair and 4-H Youth Livestock Show. The 2014 Planning Committee is gearing up for events to promote agriculture and natural resources, and celebrate their importance to Anson County. Due to location issues, our 2014 events will be a little different. The annual 4-H Youth Livestock Show will be held Friday and Saturday, September 26-27, at Circle G Arena in Lilesville. The annual Ag Fair will be held September 27 at the Extension Center. Due to having the events in different locations, the full Expo as has been held in past years will be on hiatus for 2014. The 4-H Youth Livestock Show will begin at 6:00 pm on Friday and again at 9:00 am on Saturday at Circle G. The Ag Fair will be open to the public on Saturday from 9:00 am until 2:00 pm in Wadesboro. All events are free to the public. For more information on specific events, check out these links – -      Anson Ag Fair Book Rules and Regulations -      2014 Line Up of Events -       Anson Ag Fair and 4-H Youth Livestock Show Poster -       4-H Livestock Show Rules -       4-H Livestock Show Registration Because some of our annual Expo events are established and anticipated by the public each year, we did not want to cancel them completely. So, be on the lookout for them at this year’s newly revamped community festival, Taste of the Pee Dee on Saturday, October 11 in uptown Wadesboro. There, you will still be able to participate in some of our popular annual events. For more specifics on those, click on the following links – -       Local Foods Bake-Off -       Creative Squash Challenge -       Kiddie Tractor Pull Hopefully this will be a one-year hiccup and our normal format will be back on track for 2015. Plan to celebrate agriculture a little differently this year. Come out and join the fun. Celebrate agriculture in Anson.
