Summertime is almost here, and with it comes state fair season! In addition to the thrilling midway rides and the endless variety of food options, state fairs provide an important opportunity for the rural and urban communities across the country to come together. As farmers show off the fruits of their own labors (produce and livestock competitions are staple events at most state fairs) attendees from the general public have opportunity to learn about the agriculture industry.

Don't miss this once-a-year opportunity for fun and learning; plan now to attend one of these state fairs!
