Year of the Farmer

Year of the Farmer


This is the greatest showcase of the Past, Present & Future of Hoosier Agriculture. Dow AgroSciences and the Indiana State Fair Commission are proud to dedicate your Great Indiana State Fair to the families who make it happen: The Year of the Farmer. We will honor and gratefully introduce those who have committed their lives to producing food, fiber & fuel through the innovation of their Farms, our Future and our Communities. Join us August 7 – 23, 2015 for this great celebration.
