Rockdale Fair- Home Economics Division Moving to January 2023

Did you know that Rockdale Fair host a Home Economics Division at the fair? This division is an opportunity for youth and adults to work on projects that they complete at home or in a 4-H or FFA meeting or even an art class and compete! Division categories include Afghans, baked goods, canned goods, clothing art, collections, painting, creative arts, drawings, floral arrangements, holiday crafts, handwork, horticulture, paper crafts, photography, quilts, recycled crafts, woodworking, and many other categories!

This year, to enhance and provide a great experience to the youth and adults of Milam County, we have decided to move the Home Economics to January 2023. This will also participants an opportunity to have time to work on their projects during the Holiday seasons and enter them later since the fall season is so hectic and busy! This will provide for a quality Home Economics Show and we hope to boost participation.

A date is being worked on for the January 2023 Rockdale Fair Home Economics Show! We can’t wait to make it bigger and better! Stay tuned for the new date!
