Washington Pavilion Hosts Free Family Day in Celebration of Agriculture

February 22, 2019

Sioux Falls, SD — American agriculture is responsible for providing the necessities of everyday life - food, fiber, clothing and even fuel. That’s the message of National Ag Day, which will be celebrated March 23, 2019 at the Washington Pavilion. 

The 16th Annual Ag Day on March 23 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. shows appreciation to the farmers and ranchers of the Midwest who make everyday life livable. There will be ag-related activities, booths and a free lunch featuring South Dakota-made products. 

Thanks to generous Ag Day sponsors, admission to the Kirby Science Discovery Center and Visual Arts Center is FREE.

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! Producers, agricultural associations, corporations, universities, government agencies and countless others across America will gather to celebrate the abundance provided by agriculture.
