PITTSBURG, Kan. – Four State Farm Show organizers say for the first time in 36 years, the event will feature indoor exhibit spaces for rural living exhibitors.

The event that took place south of Pittsburg near the junction of Highways 400, 69 and K-171 — will take place on the campus of Pittsburg State University in 2020. (Read more here.)

“The Four State Farm Show has a solid history of showcasing the latest in agricultural products, services and technology, and that will continue,” said Lance Markley, Four State Farm Show coordinator and Farm Talk Newspaper publisher. “Our new rural living area will provide exhibits of interest to all spectators at the show.”

Organizers say the Robert W. Plaster Center has the capacity for more than 400 indoor exhibit spaces, including booths for rural living. They say a similar rural living section has proven popular each fall at the Ozark Fall Farmfest, a joint venture between Farm Talk Newspaper and the Ozark Empire Fair in Springfield, Missouri. At the Springfield show, rural living displays have featured everything from home décor, lawn furniture, cosmetics, clothing and apparel, and more.

“We are actively selling the rural living booths at this time,” Markley said. “If you feel like this exposure would be a good fit for your business, we would like to work with you.”

The show will take place May 29, 30 and 31. Parking and admission are free. Show hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday.
