Farm Bureau Building at the state fair to feature new look, new activities
This year at the Indiana State Fair, it is the Year of the Coliseum. It’s also the year of the redesigned Indiana Farm Bureau building.
Visitors to the building this year can expect to see new displays, child-friendly learning activities and updated technology emphasizing a few key subject areas: the evolution of farming, the prevalence of agriculture in everyday life and the differences in farm sizes and types.
Fair visitors can rest assured that, despite the updates inside the building, some of their favorite IFB building activities will not be changing. Popcorn will still be available and the three-day Taste from Indiana Farms will still be held.
“A lot of time and effort on the part of many people has gone into the development of the new exhibit, and we are excited about the opportunity to educate fairgoers about the importance of agriculture,” said Julie Taylor, education coordinator for Indiana Farm Bureau.
The Indiana State Fair runs August 1-17. Stop by the Indiana Farm Bureau building (located on the north side of the fairgrounds) to take a look.
