Turner will perform an acoustic show free-of-charge for registered convention attendees in celebration of the organization’s milestone anniversary. Convention attendees must be INFB members.
“We’re pleased to be able to provide top-tier entrainment fitting for a milestone as significant as a 100th anniversary,” said Randy Kron, president of INFB. “As the backbone of our state’s agriculture industry, our members work hard year-round. It’s an honor to be able to give them an opportunity to relax and enjoy an evening with a musician as talented as Josh Turner.”
In addition to the concert, INFB has arranged several special events and activities for members in celebration of its anniversary, including a 100th anniversary dinner on Friday evening at the West Baden Springs Hotel.

Throughout the convention, attendees also will be able to view relics from INFB’s past in the Farm Bureau Museum, a memorabilia room. And to commemorate this milestone event for future generations, INFB has arranged for a photo opportunity for all attendees, which will result in a mosaic-style display.
