The Delta Fair family shares the sentiment of gratitude toward our Military Heroes. We want to extend to the people of the mid-south a way to thank our troops and their families for their commitment to our country and our freedom. We want to show our support and let them know their sacrifices do not go unnoticed. Whether you are in the military or a member of military families, you deserve a heartfelt “Thank You” for what you have done and continue to do for our country.
King Cotton will be the sponsor of the “Salute Our Military” Day, and we will promote this day of appreciation by providing events to honor the men and women wearing U.S. Military uniforms that protect our freedom all over the world. Fairgoers will be able to contribute and participate in such organizations as Operation Troop Aid and A Million Thanks.
Anyone with a military ID and their families (up to 2 adult and 2 child admissions) will receive admission into Delta Fair for free until 2 pm.
All proceeds benefit the following non-profit organizations
Operation Troop Aid – We will be collecting money throughout the 10 days of the fair to provide care packages for our troops stationed overseas. We will also hold a 10 day silent auction and live auction on September 10th highlighting autographed guitars and sports memorabilia .
A Million Thanks – We will provide a table for fairgoers to write cards, letters, and prayer messages of appreciation for our military, past and present. Through the non-profit A Million Thanks will send the messages to military serving at home, abroad, or those who are injured in hospitals.
