Virginia Ag Expo Canceled

Ag Expo 2The 2020 Virginia Ag Expo has been canceled to ensure the health and safety of exhibitors and guests as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Virginia Ag Expo is the largest agricultural field day held in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

The first field day was held in 1978 sponsored by the VCGA (Virginia Corn Growers Association). In the early 80’s VSA (Virginia Soybean Association) joined the VCGA to put on the expo. In the early 2000’s VCGA merged with Virginia Small Grains Association to become Virginia Grain producers Association. Today the VGPA and the VSA continue to sponsor the Expo in cooperation with the Virginia Cooperative Extension Service. Virginia Farm Bureau has been a long-time supporter of the Virginia Ag Expo.

The Expo is held on a working farm each year and moves from one location to another to showcase the diversity of the different areas of the state. This year’s event would have taken place at Bleak House Farm in Lottsburg.
