The Mobile Fair Tour will be part of the Farm Fresh Festival for Kids NYC on September 17th in the Seaport District. The Farm Fresh Festival for Kids is a free community family event, to connect kids and families to a wholesome and magical farm experience in NYC. The theme of the Farm Fresh Kids Festival is EAT, LEARN, PLAY – A Day at the Farm! The purpose of the Festival is to connect kids with where food comes from, and how food grows. The Festival is also a community benefit to raise awareness and funds for non-profit organizations working in NYC to fight childhood obesity, hunger and poor nutrition.
The Tractor Supply Company Mobile Fair Tour is making 24 stops at state and county fairs, as well as select stores – and now New York City – along its route between now and November. The Mobile Fair Tour—presented by Purina Animal Nutrition®, Nestle Purina®, Shell Rotella® & Ariat International®—began its route June 2 in Texas and concludes November 13 in Louisiana.

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 be eligible to 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 $1,000 TSC gift card and more.
