Ag Expo ready for 25th year

The New Mexico Ag Expo will be celebrating its 25th anniversary when it opens March 24-25 at the Roosevelt County Fairgrounds in Portales. The committee is working to add special touches to mark the occasion.
 
“Ag Expo was a tremendous idea 25 years ago when it started and we want to recognize those founders this year,” said Ag Expo Chair Casey Peacock. We welcome anyone with ideas or suggestions to let us know.”
 
The hours of the show are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday with vendor setup starting at 9 a.m. Thursday.
 
The Roosevelt County Events Arena, where the main show is held is large enough to accommodate the entire show indoors, including large equipment, which has previously been displayed outside, making the event both vendor and visitor friendly.
 
Vendor booth space is now available. Early bird vendor rates apply until Dec. 31, 2016. In addition new sponsorship opportunities are available.
