BRENTWOOD, Tenn. — Tractor Supply Co.

The Mobile Fair Tour—presented by Purina Animal Nutrition®, Nestle Purina®, Shell Rotella® & Ariat International®—began its route June 2 in Texas and concludes Nov. 13 in Louisiana.
The Mobile Fair Tour will be at the Georgia National Fair in Perry from Oct. 13-16. The TSC Follow Us to the Fair Tour is a fun, interactive experience that brings the excitement of “Life Out Here” to thousands of fairgoers and TSC customers. It all starts at the 60´ x 50´ footprint that is set up, which provides everything from music and activities on stage to photo opportunities and a chance to lasso a “runaway pig.” Visitors can also win prizes at the Register to Win kiosks inside the TSC “barn,” which include a Carry On trailer, a $750 Carhartt clothing package, a $500 Ticketmaster gift card, a $100 TSC gift card and more.
“Fairs are an important part of our customers’ lives, culture and communities, and that makes them an important venue for TSC to support and engage around,” said Tractor Supply’s Director of Store Marketing Lisa White. “We are pleased to recognize youth making a difference in their communities, embracing the self-reliant lifestyle.”
In addition to offering free family-friendly activities, Tractor Supply will also host a ceremony to recognize five Georgia 4-H youth members for their community contributions.
The students being acknowledged are Suzanne Palmertree (Henry County), Dalton Green (Walker County), Matthew Belville (Berrien County), Sophia Rodriguez (Liberty County) and Amelia Day (Houston County).
Through 4-H, these students have made impactful contributions to their communities. From holding leadership positions to participation in various competitions and fundraisers, they embody the true spirit of the organization.
“I love 4-H so much and am incredibly blessed to call my fellow 4-H’ers family,” said Sophia Rodriguez. “I wouldn’t be who I am today without these organizations and hope I can continue to contribute to its success by motivating future members to always put their best foot forward Tractor Supply will conduct a ceremony at TSC Mobile Fair Experience footprint at 10:30 a.m. Sunday at the Georgia National Fair.
