The Missouri State Fair will celebrate the 59th Annual Farm Bureau/Farm Family Day.

On August 14, farm families will be recognized at a dinner in their honor at the Director's Tent. Additionally, family names and respective counties will be on display at an exhibit sponsored by the University of Missouri Extension, west of the Historic Administration Building.

Farm families were nominated by the University of Missouri Extension and Missouri Farm Bureau to represent 112 counties in Missouri.

Farm Family Day offers gate admission, carnival and truck and tractor pull discounts for fair-goers. Coupons are available at all Missouri county Farm Bureau offices. These coupons are good for $1 off adult gate admission, $5 dollars off unlimited carnival ride wristbands, and $5 off adult and $3 off youth Outlaw Truck and Tractor Pull tickets. Coupons are valid August 14.

Farm family day is sponsored and supported by Missouri Farm Bureau, University of Missouri Extension, the Missouri Department of Agriculture, the Missouri State Fair, and the MU College of Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources.
