Is the glowing Ferris wheel really the poster child of the state fair and county fair? Probably. But the agricultural exhibitions, in all their produce and livestock-laden glory, might just be the backbone. Think about it. How often do rodeos or livestock contests go hand in hand with the funnel cakes and carnival rides? Very. Of course, agriculture doesn’t have to be tied to fairs. There are agriculture and livestock festivals in cities all over the world. These festivals might celebrate a town’s heritage or the harvest of a special crop, whether it’s grapes, pumpkins or tobacco. But you can count on finding agriculture at many festivals from the State Fair of Texas in Dallas, to the Pushkar Camel Fair in Pushkar, India.
