Interested in exhibiting?

We anticipate over 1,200 students in grades two through five to come to the 23rd Annual Farm City Day on October 5, 2017 – they come to discover Pennsylvania agriculture and learn through a variety of hands-on, engaging activities and education stations.

There is no cost to exhibit during Farm City Day. Our hope is to engage students in agriculture by showing the industry’s relationship with science, math, nutrition, geography and more! While in attendance, students will also gain a better understanding of where their food comes from, the important role of farms in Pennsylvania, and the many great things that Pennsylvania agriculture provides each day.

We encourage you to participate and host and education station! Engage students in agriculture and help them gain a better understanding of Pennsylvania’s leading economic enterprise and how your job plays an important role within the industry.
