The 45th annual Farm Fair Ag and Trade Show is set for Nov. 28-30 at the Eastern Oregon Trade & Event Center in Hermiston.
The event is a partnership with the Hermiston Chamber of Commerce and the Oregon State University Hermiston Agriculture Research and Extension Center. Local and regional agriculture-related businesses will display their services and products both inside and outside the center.
Topics and sessions include a pollinator workshop, sessions on pesticides, water, potato production, organic farming, cereal and more.
No pre-registration is required for the seminars; agriculture related seminars will be offered all three days. All sessions are free to attendees except for the core classes. Oregon, Washington and Idaho pesticide recertification credits will be available but there are limited spots. A full Farm Fair agenda with pesticide credit hours will be available by mid-November.
The Hermiston Farm Fair Banquet will be held on Thursday, Nov. 29 at the Hermiston Community Center. The dinner is catered by Simply Catering.
Tickets are $30 per person and are available at the Hermiston Chamber office and on the chamber website.
All tables will be decorated and sponsored by various businesses, so everyone goes home with a gift. A no-host social hour will begin the evening at 6 p.m. and dinner will follow. Entertainment will be by John Wambeke and Friends.
New this year is a welcome reception for event vendors and sponsors on Wednesday, Nov. 29 from 5-7 p.m. following Farm Fair’s first day at EOTEC. The evening’s sponsor is Simplot Soil Growers. There will be local foods, wine and beer as well as soft drinks.
