About Us

The Campustown Showdown is like no other cattle jackpot show in the nation. This unique show on April 20, 2024 starts at the Hansen Agriculture Student Learning Center where exhibitors will compete to have the chance to show their market prospect cattle or breeding heifers in the streets of the Campustown Business District. The judges will select the Grand & Reserve Champion for the market & breeding cattle divisions. While in Campustown, exhibitors will be awarded cash prizes, and public attendees will enjoy live music, a fashion show, shopping, and other performances and experiences.

The idea of the national cattle jackpot show came to fruition in the heart of Aggieville in Manhattan, KS in June 2019 between close friends who share a passion for agriculture education and has spread this love to Campustown. The show was developed to celebrate American beef producers while advancing exhibitor’s and the public’s knowledge about the livestock industry. The first inaugural Aggieville Showdown was held in April of 2021 and our team looks forward to continuing the annual event to unite exhibitors, students, businesses, and all public to celebrate agriculture in Campustown!
