    I found info on this show (Unifour, All Breed Poultry Show), happening this weekend in Salisbury at the Rowan County Fairgrounds,1500 Julian Rd, Salisbury, NC 28146 .. is it a big show ? Ive found some snippets of information but no one is letting on as to the size of the event.

    thanks

    The actual show or the sales in the parking lot?

    This is, IMO, the biggest sales show in this area, hands down. Last year, the parking lot was like a big flea market. 3 rows (two sides each) of vehicles parked with just lots and lots of poultry, some rabbits, a few goats, some animal supplies, some incubators...it is, IMO, the best if you're looking to sell or buy.

    LOVE this show. If I could only go to one for the year in this area, this would be it.

    As long I get my van up and running, I'll be there. Taking it to the garage today. Although DH may keep the kids and I'll take his car otherwise since it'll be my last show for a long time.

    Hey Asher... we're planning on being at the show tomorrow.

    We've never gone to a poultry show, so we are show-newbies.

    Is there a per-person charge to get in? How about for parking.

    If we get there at 10am or so, will there still be something worth seeing?

    Thanks! Hope to see you there!

    Good question Arlee. I forgot to ask about fee.

    Im leaving at 7am if my ride shows up on time I should be there around 9-9:30am ... I hope I find the couple new bantam hens I want.

    FREE! :) It is free. No parking charge. They prob. have food set up for sale, but that's it.

    Sre there'll still be stuff to see at 10. :) Maybe even some stuff for sale still. ;-) The show generally goes until around 2pm or so. There'll be a silent auction most likely at the end of the show, too. Fun fun! :) Please stop by my vehicle and say hi. :) HOPING to make it. *sigh* If so, I'll be there around 8am.
