I am disappointed in myself not to be aware of this cool event. It happens once a month for much of this year, but it’s the last for 2021.
It’s the Benton Chicken Exchange. I wasn’t sure what it was at first. Do you trade chicken soup recipes? Do you actually bring chicken dishes and swap casseroles? Nope. You bring live animals and trade yours for one you might want.
The Benton Chicken Swap is a family event where you can bring any farm animals you want to trade or sell. You never know what will happen every weekend. You might find goats, pigs, chickens, ducks, turkeys, quails, guineas, rabbits, or many other animal species.
It’s not just an animal event. You will also find many handicrafts and art objects. Homemade candles, jewelry, t-shirts and many other unique items.
You can also find great food with tamales and burgers, lemonade, and snow cones. They are also planning to have a bounce house for the youngsters.
This event is free.
