The purpose of the Orange County Live Stock Show Association shall be to provide and encourage leadership in the youth of Orange County through FFA and 4H Clubs as well as other organizations.
The goal of the OCLSA is to build an ole fashion County Fair in conjunction with the livestock show. Simple contests such as baking, canning, Best Vegetable from Garden, flower arranging and others are what we would like to bring to this fall festival. Even a sack race, pie-eating contest would round out this event with a lot of fun. Come out and help us grow this Fall Festival and Livestock show. We invite other clubs or groups to come out and see what we are about and may be you would like to participate next year.
