Text Alerts for JBE!

The JBE is just a few days away! We are gearing up for the best show yet and we want to keep you in the loop.

Stall Assignments

We hope you are getting as excited as we are about the 2018 JBE show. Be sure to check out the stall assignment for your county. Download the PDF here.

Also, "All stalls, exhibition spaces and main alleyways must be cleaned before 9:00 AM each day, and refuse matter must be disposed of as the show superintendent directs. Feed, chairs, equipment boxes, etc. are not permitted in the main alleys or in barn aisles." Total Stalls were calculated by adding the number of exhibitor families (not individuals) plus the number of head from each county. Tie Outs
