Purpose

This shapefile displays the locations and other pertinent information about the state level agricultural fairs held throughout the United States. It aids in providing the situational awareness for the agricultural sector, as well as the high value symbolic sector. Not only are the fairs gathering places for large numbers of livestock that then disperse, but large numbers of pople travel to these fairs. Additionally, other events--such as gun shows, arts & crafts shows, trade shows, etc.--are held at the fairgrounds through the year.
