Join us as we look back on the fascinating history of the Arkansas State Fair. The Arkansas Livestock Association began in 1938, but since the late 1860s, Arkansas has held numerous state fairs and livestock shows.
While these early fairs and associations promoted agriculture in their state and tourism in their cities, they struggled year after year to raise the money needed to hold these events. With the social upheaval caused by the Great Depression, a group of businessmen, farmers, and educators led by oilman T.H. Barton began to dream of a new economy that was not dependent on cotton farming.
This 8.5"x11" hardcover, pictorial, history book is available to purchase. Don't miss this unique opportunity to explore the fair's rich history in the limited edition book.
The Arkansas State Fair would like to thank Arkansas Farm Bureau for sponsoring The Arkansas State Fair History Book.
