Farmfest and Dakotafest have been cancelled due COVID-19.

“We announce this decision with great disappointment, but the well-being of our exhibitors, attendees, staff, volunteers and their families is paramount,” said Zippy Duvall, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation. AFBF owns IDEAg Group LLC, which produces the shows.

“We understand the impact this has on the ag community, but simply put, it is the right decision to make in these uncertain times,” he said.

Some aspects of the shows, such as the Farmfest Political Forums, will be available virtually. Visit Farmfest and Dakotafest online for more information about virtual events.

The 2021 show dates are Aug. 3-5 for Farmfest and Aug. 17-19 for Dakotafest
