Aberdeen Ag Expo

March 3rd, 4th, & 5th, 2020
Holum Expo Building on the Brown Country Fairgrounds

The Aberdeen Ag Expo is the area’s only show dedicated and designed with our local farmers in mind. We’ve made many changes to improve this year’s show. This year the Aberdeen Ag Expo has moved out to the Brown County Fairgrounds. This will allow for a larger show and the freedom to have more things that benefit both the farmer and show vendor.
