Event Details

Farm-City Days

Linking agriculture and industry by way activities with a carnival, musical entertainment, historical tours and re-enactments, artisan demonstrations, an art show, large parade, tours and demonstrations by the fire and police departments, fish casting contests, Bowlus Fine Arts Center performances, horse and carriage rides, and hard boiled egg eating contest.

Farm City Days began in 1971 when a group of Allen County Farm Bureau members reasoned that if they brought the townspeople out to the farm they would better understand the problems and concerns with which farmers dealt daily. Later the Chamber of Commerce and Jaycees got involved and added an industrial tour as well. There were craft and food booths, games for kids, frog jumping, turtle racing contests, and a mud run. Activities also included exhibits by farm implement dealers, a car show, fly-in at the airport, and a street dance. The celebration has grown and 35 years later more and more activities have been added.
