This year marks the 10th anniversary of Wyoming County Agri-Palooza, the award-winning free event that will take place on Sunday, June 14, 2020, from Noon until 4:00 PM. This year, Agri-Palooza will be held at the Wyoming County Fairgrounds in Pike, NY. The location was announced and a new logo was unveiled at the annual Pride of Agriculture event held on Saturday, March 7.
Agri-Palooza highlights agriculture in Wyoming County and welcomes the public to spend the day learning about Wyoming’s #1 industry. Agri-Palooza is a free educational event that invites the public to learn more about their agricultural neighbors and farming in Wyoming County. Visitors will get a chance to view educational displays; tour through farm displays and machinery; and enjoy children’s games and activities. Visitors will also get a chance to tour the Wyoming County Fair’s newly constructed Agricultural Exposition Center.
“In addition to our regular partners, we are very pleased this year to be partnering with the Arts Council, and the Fair Association as host, to bring this event to the community,” said Chamber President and CEO Scott Gardner. “2020 marks a milestone for Agri-Palooza, and we are very pleased to take the event to the fair to show off all the work taking place at the fairgrounds as a preview for a great fair season later in the summer.”
Agri-businesses and related organizations will also be on-hand to show their work and the importance of agriculture to our local economy. Local vendors will be available at the on-site Farmers’ Market with hand made goods and local products for purchase.
