State Fair is in the air!!! Today is opening day and this time next week we will be T-1 hour to starting our first Youth Livestock Show of the 2021 SFVA.

Our shows, awards, and the overall experience would not be possible without AMAZING and GENEROUS Sponsors. First Bank and Trust is one of those!

For several years now, First Bank & Trust has been a Diamond Sponsor and has provided a T-Shirt for each exhibitor at check-in. This year will be no different, and we are so grateful to First Bank & Trust for giving each exhibitor something to remember each year's State Fair. This year's T-shirt design is pictured below. We can't wait to see all of you and see you sporting your State Fair spirit.

THANK YOU First Bank & Trust for your continued and unmatched support of the State Fair Youth Livestock Programs!
