Pennsylvania is proud to host the largest indoor
agricultural exposition under one roof in the nation, though it'll look a little different this year. The event
showcases the quality and breadth of Pennsylvania’s agriculture industry and
the people who make it thrive. The show offers visitors a tiny slice of the
industry that employs nearly half a million people and contributes $185 billion
to Pennsylvania’s economy every year. Out of an abundance of caution, we have made the tough decision to take a year to lie fallow.
Rather than an in-person Farm Show, we will celebrate Pennsylvania agriculture virtually for 2021 as we prepare for a productive future.
We'll look at our strengths and where we need to invest together in order to grow. We'll consider what has become crystal clear during the pandemic – that agriculture is essential for life, and our people are resilient and innovative. We will focus on agricultural awareness, education, and literacy while highlighting the interconnectedness of our food chain. Bringing to light that agriculture is virtually everywhere. We'll tell this story through technology as we envision and cultivate a prosperous, thriving future together.
Virtual events will be focused on education and awareness for both the general public and the agriculture industry. Any competitive ag events that are held virtually will not require the purchase of an animal.
