Dear Parents and Exhibitors,
There is still time to register to avoid a late fee. We have extended the entries to October 31, 2021. So the late fees won't apply until Monday November 1, 2021.
We are sorry for the delay in reaching out to everyone, but felt we needed to make sure of important information before making any announcements.
We have been working on gathering additional information concerning the latest case of RHDV in St. John's County, Florida.
It has been determined that there is a positive RHDV case, and per the State of Florida, Department of Agriculture, and the State Veterinarian, our facility is over the 125 miles from the affected case. Therefore we are moving ahead with the rabbit show portion of the Poultry and Rabbit Show.
We take the health and safety of the rabbits seriously and for that reason we will not be allowing rabbits to register from counties north of Osceola County.
This is with a heavy heart that we must make this decision. We encourage everyone to continue to follow the biosecurity guidelines for your rabbit’s health and safety. All exhibitors will need to know that even if you come for the poultry show, there will be rabbits at the show. There are no restrictions on the poultry portion of the show, but encourage everyone to follow all safety and biosecurity guidelines before and after the show as well as, when you return home with all Poultry and Rabbit animals.
As a reminder the Committee will take every precaution against loss or mishap, but will not be held responsible should any occur. Your participation constitutes your agreement to hold harmless the Kissimmee Livestock Show & Fair, Facilities, 4H, FFA & Committee from claims and losses.
**If you are a rabbit exhibitor unable to bring your rabbits and would like to do rabbit activities such as the skillathon, rabbit poster, or a rabbit photo contest, Please let us know. We want to encourage you to have something towards your project year.
We appreciate your continued support for our show and look forward to seeing you.
