Syndicate Smokedown



The best part? It’s all for a good cause! The Smokedown is designed to fulfill the Syndicate’s mission of making the dreams of young livestock exhibitors come true through scholarships. With the profits from the event they will be awarding $10,000 scholarships to 4-H and FFA students pursuing careers in agriculture or life sciences at a Texas state sponsored university!

If you want the ultimate experience there’s limited VIP still tickets available and all the details for those can be found at the link above.
