 This event will be highlighting Albemarle County Agriculture at Lee Park and on the Mall. There will be agriculture
education displays, events and demonstrations, live animals, children's activities, hayrides, and a few surprise events. Downtown restaurants will offer meals featuring fresh, local, farm products. The retail shops will be encouraged to focus on agriculture, family and community while producing special attractions to lure people into their shops. Albemarle County Farm Bureau and the Local Food Hub will sponsor a "Farm-to-Family Table" event on Friday evening. The Main Street Arena will sponsor a Public Skate for Agriculture Education on Friday, September 19 (6-8:45 PM), and host a Cooking Demo by Downtown Restaurants (Sponsored by Brookville) on Saturday, September 20 (4-6 PM). We're hoping to include tastings there as well.
