Michigan Agricultural Fairs are an economic and social asset to over 86 communities. They are the ultimate showcase of Michigan Agriculture. With an attendance of about 4,535,289, they are a major factor in Michigan Tourism.
Fairs are an under-utilized resource in the Agricultural industry. Over half of the state’s population passes through fair gates looking for a renewed contact with agriculture. Fairs can provide the avenue to show their visitors the good things that are happening in agriculture today and what they can look forward to in the future.
