A letter from the Board of Directors:
The 2021 Tri-County Fair Junior Livestock Show & Sale is scheduled for June 22, 2021 – June 27, 2021. The show will be a live in-person show and the auction will be online. The auction will open for bids on Wednesday, June 23 and close on Saturday, June 26 @ 7PM. It will once again be a race horse style close with the clock resetting every 3 minutes if there’s a new bid. Complete auction registration and bidding instructions will be sent to all buyers in May.
Our mighty fairgrounds made history last year with having one of the first in-person shows in California for our junior exhibitors. It was a HUGE success because of our dedicated youth exhibitors, fairgrounds staff, volunteers and our AMAZING community. We thank you for all of the support we received last year and welcome any new support for the upcoming year.
The COVID Pandemic has rattled our communities. Unfortunately, there are still many unknowns. However, what is constant and definite is the future of our youth. Activities such as 4H and FFA are more important than ever. These organizations are teaching our kids responsibility, financial management, leadership, teamwork and positive work ethic. These projects have brought a level of normalcy to the lives of many youth while other programs were shut down or put on hold.
Our Livestock Exhibitors work hard all year in selecting, feeding, working and grooming their market animals. Their hard work pays off when these projects are judged, graded and sold. The show and sale would not be possible without the support of our community.
We are once again seeking your help to offset costs for the show and sale. Please see the attached Sponsorship Levels and Form for more information. We welcome all levels of donations. We were successful last year with the “livestream feed” of all the classes. Family and friends were able to watch the show from their homes locally and in other states. We received over 3,000 views on our livestream. We will continue the livestream this year and offer sponsors an opportunity to receive recognition through the livestream video. It’s a great branding opportunity for businesses and organizations.
We thank you for your continued support and if you’re new, welcome to the junior livestock family! If you have any questions, please reach out to one of our committee members.
