Washington Pavilion Hosts Free Family Day in Celebration of Agriculture

March 8, 2018

Sioux Falls, SD Join the Washington Pavilion at the 15th Annual Ag Day on March 17 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and help thank farmers, ranchers and the agriculture industry here in the Midwest. There will be ag-related activities and booths and a free lunch featuring South Dakota-made products. 

American agriculture is responsible for providing the necessities of everyday life: food, fiber, clothing and even fuel, which is the message of National Ag Day. Each year, the Washington Pavilion gathers members of the agricultural industry in an effort to promote agriculture in the Midwest, with a focus on sharing how agriculture provides almost everything we eat, use and wear on a daily basis!
