For over 20 years, Bassett has been host to many from across the United States who come to exhibit or view new technology and enterprises at the annual Ranch Expo. This year will be no exception. the "Sandhills Ranch Expo" is scheduled for June 12 and 13 at the Rock County Fairgrounds in conjunction with the large craft show at Rock County High school.
It is an excellent opportunity to see first-hand the state of the art ranching equipment and more. From cattle and cattle chutes, ATV's to livestock feed dealers, from sunglasses to toy vendors, to arts and crafts and quilted handiwork.
The 2013 Wednesday night entertainment will begin with the "Roughstock Challenge." Riders will have to ride bareback, saddlebronc, and bullriding which will provide first class entertainment for the entire family. Following the bull riding the band "Side Step" will be playing in the beer garden.
A shuttle service will once again be provided for transportation from the the high school...and downtown.
There is also plenty of extra parking at the Rock County High School, or at the Bassett Livestock Auction.
