The fairgrounds are located south of the intersection of U.S. Highways 14 and 63.

Farmers from Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin are expected to attend the two-day event.

Parking is free and there is no admission charge. The best way to reach the parking area is to approach it from Highway 63 or South Broadway. If traveling south on Highway 63 or South Broadway, turn left on 14th Street SE and park in the lot. If traveling north on Highway 63 or South Broadway, turn right at 14th Street SE.

The adherence to a policy of only allowing farm-related exhibitors in the show and reliance on diversity has earned the Agri News Farm Show a good reputation in farming circles, said Rosie Allen, show organizer and Agri News advertising manager.

"I'm looking forward to this year's show," Allen said. "We have a nice mix of returning exhibitors and first-time exhibitors who will be displaying a wide variety of products."

Long-time exhibitors at the Agri News Farm Show include: Hammell Equipment, Brickl Bros., Northland Farm Systems, S.E. Minnesota Silo and Jung Seeds.

"We appreciate the long-time exhibitors," Allen said. "Many people return to the show each year to visit with their vendors. We also enjoy attracting new exhibitors to the region's premier farm show."

New exhibitors this year include: Chatfield Lumber, Rochester Asphalt, Hemesath Custom Bunks, Solar Connection, Robo Rock Picker, Pritchett Twine and Deals on Wheels Scooters.

"We're lucky to have such a diverse group of companies promoting their products and services at our show," Allen said. "We have companies that offer products to small farmers and large farmers and everyone in between."
