Join us for a unique evening at the Indiana State Fair benefiting the Indiana State Fair Foundation!
Traditional harvest dinners bring together family and friends for celebration and fellowship at the end of a long planting season. They are the culmination of months of hard work, commitment and stewardship. They are the very essence of what it means to be a farmer in Indiana.
The Indiana State Fair is our state’s largest celebration of agriculture, so what better way to celebrate than with a Harvest Dinner to honor Indiana’s farmers.
This year’s event will take place on Wednesday, August 15, 2018, in the Indiana Farmers Coliseum. The Keynote Speaker is Ted Allen, Emmy and two-time James Beard Award-winner and hostof the hit prime-time competition series “Chopped” and “Chopped Junior” on Food Network.
