Tennessee Valley Fair Rodeo


The annual Tennessee Valley Fair in Knoxville, TN, held September 5 – 14, 2014, offered all the agricultural amenities of a traditional county fair, from how to grow the food to how to prepare it in delicious ways. Contests included: Great Bowls of Fire chili cook-off, canning, horticulture, Fairest of the Fair beauty pageant, Ice Cream Eating contest, Lego Extravaganza, photography, arts and crafts, and more. The Future Farmers of America and 4-H members were on hand to show all kinds of animals: horses, beef and dairy cattle, goats, poultry, and rabbits. The “Down on the Farm” exhibit gave city folks an opportunity to experience the sights, sounds, tastes, and smells of farming in an interactive, hands-on way. The guys were excited about the Tractor & Truck Pull on Friday and Saturday evenings, September 5 and 6. This was the only NTPA Region 6 pull in East Tennessee, featuring Heavy Superstock, Super Farm Tractors, 2WD Trucks, and Light Superstocks. The Demolition Derby pitted ramshackle vehicles crashing into each other in the mud on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights, September 8-10. On the Fair’s concluding weekend, September 12-14, the cowboys and cowgirls took center stage at the Spur’n S Rodeo. There were bull riding, barrel racing, saddle bronc, and calf roping events, with the corny humor of the Rodeo Clown to spice up the works. Here are some pictorial highlights of the Spur’n S Rodeo.
