Harvest Dinner

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.

All proceeds from this event will benefit the Celebration of Champions which awards the hard working 4-H youth who rise to the top of their peers at the Indiana State Fair.

The 2020 Harvest Dinner has been cancelled. We look forward to seeing you at the 2021 Harvest Dinner!


The Harvest Award is given annually at the Harvest Dinner to an individual, organization or company that has made a significant contribution to the growth of our great Indiana State Fair with a focus on agriculture, youth and education.
