Farm Show to feature rural living exhibits for first time

With the relocation of the Four State Farm Show to the campus of Pittsburg State University and its Robert W. Plaster Center, more businesses have the opportunity to reach the 20,000 expected attendees during the three-day show.

For the first time in 36 years, the Four State Farm Show will feature indoor exhibit spaces perfect for rural living exhibitors.

“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.”

The 2020 Four State Farm Show will be held on the campus of Pittsburg State University with indoor exhibits in the Robert W. Plaster Center.

The spacious Robert W. Plaster Center has the capacity for more than 400 indoor exhibit spaces, including booths for rural living. 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.

The addition of the new rural living exhibits to the Four State Farm Show offers non-agricultural businesses the chance to reach thousands of show visitors over the course of the three-day event.

“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.
