The 6th Annual National Heirloom Exposition
September 6, 2016, 10:00am - September 8, 2016, 9:00pm
Welcome to the 6th annual National Heirloom Exposition. What began in 2011 as a celebration of pure food and sustainable living has become the world’s largest annual heritage farm and garden event. Thousands of people come from around the world to the Expo to celebrate traditional crops, foods, seeds, poultry, and livestock. Featuring the largest display of heirloom produce, many small gardeners and large farmers supply an abundance of fruits and vegetables for exhibiting and tasting. More than 350 related and like-minded vendors include seed companies, tool companies, accessories, food, produce, garden products, and much more. We welcome individuals, school groups, musicians, volunteers, speakers, musicians, chef demonstrations, and many more. The fun and educational activities are sure to influence the way people view food and our sustainable future. We have an outstanding line up of more than 75 nationally and internationally known food, farm and garden speakers that will impress even the most discerning. Visitors are entertained all day with old-time traditional music. The National Heirloom Exposition has always been and continues to be a not-for-profit event with all proceeds above expenses being donated to local school and educational garden projects. theheirloomexpo.com/
