Fort Wayne Farm Show 2018

What is it? The Fort Wayne Farm Show is back for its 29th year at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum.  The free three-day festival, January 16-18, is among the most respected in the nation, drawing visitors from around the country.  Agri-business leaders come to share their knowledge and experience, and compare the latest technology to further the industry.  Bring the kids to take a peek at the area’s largest variety of farm machinery equipment.  With the completion of the new Conference Center in the Memorial Coliseum, this year’s show is expected to be the biggest one yet, with approximately 1,100 booths and displays of even larger pieces of equipment than last year. What else is happening? Daily educational seminars are presented by the Northeastern Indiana Soil and Water Conservation Districts and Purdue Cooperative Extension.  Parkview Health Systems will be there offering free CPR classes on each day of the show.  A fundraising auction, in support of the Indiana FFA Scholarship Foundation, raised over $25,000 for scholarships in 2017 and will be held the Tuesday and Wednesday of this year’s show. ‪We appreciate that DuPont Pioneer is committed to enriching the lives of producers and consumers to create a bright future for all, including the members of Indiana FFA. Thank you for your support of our association and for allowing us to tour your Tipton facilities today!‬ A post shared by Indiana FFA (@indianaffa) on Dec 20, 2017 at 2:23pm PST What are the details?
