About the Rapides Fair

Jimbo Thiels - RFA President

Jimbo Thiels -
Rapides Fair Association, Inc., President

A special welcome to all the 4-H, FFA and adult exhibitors. We trust we serve you well in our new facilities and programs offered. Improvements have been made in the livestock, agriculture, home economics, special school, and commercial exhibit areas which add to the convenience of those who come to display and compete and those present to observe.
The Board of Directors of the Fair Association are working constantly to make it bigger and better every year. This progress can be realized through the efforts of the Board of Directors and the full support of the Rapides Parish Police Jury, the cities of Alexandria and Pineville, business and civic groups, and individuals working together to assure the success of the fair. We urge you to continue to support and encourage our youth, for the betterment of themselves, our parish, our state, and our nation.

We hope that all will gain much information, inspiration, and entertainment from the many activities available for you at this year’s Rapides Fair.
