As part of the Presidio County Fair, Ballroom Marfa is proud to present a concert by The Doodlin’ Hogwallops on April 12, 2014 in Marfa, Texas.

The fair is set for April 12 at the big red barn on Golf Course Road in Marfa and will feature contests in painting, collage, photography, breads, cookies, cakes, canning, pies, outdoor challenge, ranch horse trail, vet science, textiles and quilting.

All those contests also have youth divisions, along with ag mechanics, recordbook and a youth roping at the arena outside. Plus, there’s an all-age pecan pie contest!

That evening, starting at 6pm, folks will be treated to performances by Presidio school mariachi and folkloric dancing troupes.

Following those performances, from 7-9pm, will be a free bootscootin’ dance for everyone by Big Bend favorites, The Doodlin’ Hogwallops. This dance is very generously supported by our friends at Ballroom Marfa.

The fair is sponsored by the Presidio County 4H Parent Leader Association, a group of volunteers who help local 4H kids achieve their goals and dreams through different projects. Entry forms, schedules and rules for each of the classes can be found at local school offices, public libraries and online, at or
