The Grand Opening celebration will offer something for everyone. The event will kick off with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at 10 am. Visitors can attend educational sessions in one of the meeting rooms or cooking demonstrations in Cooperative Extension’s new teaching kitchen. Guided tours will offer a glimpse of the new office space, exhibit hall, and meeting rooms.
More than 70 exhibitors will highlight local farms, farmers’ markets, sustainable agriculture, agricultural support and advocacy, agribusiness, beekeeping, livestock, forestry, green industry, wildlife, conservation, and much more. Visitors will get an up-close look at the Forest Service’s firefighting helicopter and meet Smokey the Bear.
Several food trucks will offer excellent options for lunch while live music entertains the crowd.
