When Jack Thill started the Fort Wayne Farm Show, he envisioned a trade show where the farm community could come together with agri-business leaders to learn about and compare the latest equipment and products in this ever-changing marketplace. Now, in its 30th year, that vision has grown to become one of the nation’s most respected farm shows, attracting qualified attendees from many states.
Exhibitors present the latest farm technology the industry has to offer along with the area’s largest variety of farm machinery equipment, in one location. In 2019, Northeastern Indiana Soil and Water Conservation Districts and Purdue Cooperative Extension will present daily educational seminars. Parkview Health Systems will offer free CPR Classes each day of the show. Also in 2019, in support of the Indiana FFA Scholarship Foundation, fundraising auctions, featuring a variety of donated items, will be held both Tuesday and Wednesday. Last year’s auction raised over $20,000.00 for scholarships.
With the completion of the new Conference Center, the show now offers approximately 1100 booths. This has allowed us to display some of the larger pieces of equipment we have had to previously turn away and to include many new exhibitors!
The event will be held Jan. 15, 16, and 17, 2019.
