Potter County Youths Show At 2020 Pennsylvania Farm Show

2020 marked the 104th year of the Pennsylvania Farm Show. The show was held from January 4 - 11, 2020 in Harrisburg and is the largest indoor agricultural exposition in the nation, with nearly 6,000 animals, 10,000 competitive exhibits and 300 commercial exhibits. Pennsylvania is proud to host the largest indoor agricultural exposition under one roof in the nation. The event showcases the quality and breadth of Pennsylvania’s agriculture industry and the people who make it thrive. The show offers visitors a tiny slice of the industry that employs nearly half a million people and contributes $185 billion to Pennsylvania’s economy every year. The Pennsylvania Farm Show offers something for everyone, young and old, farmers and non-farmers, foodies and just people who like to have fun. Aside from food and entertainment, the annual event offers the public an opportunity to get an up-close view of how our food goes from farm to fork, and learn about the diversity of Pennsylvania agriculture and the ingenuity of its people. Farmers have the opportunity to show off what they do best, meet old friends and new and check out cutting edge farm equipment, supplies and farming practices.
