College of Agriculture and Natural Resources announces Ag Day date

College of Agriculture and Natural Resources announces Ag Day dateAg Day, an annual tradition of the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR) at the University of Delaware, will be held on Saturday, April 29, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Members of the campus and neighboring communities are encouraged to join the college for a day filled with music, exhibitors, great food and fun for all ages on UD’s South Campus.

Celebrating all that the college has to offer, visitors can experience everything from bird shows to bee demonstrations, livestock exhibits, 4-H arts and crafts, farm tours, and much more.

This year’s Ag Day also marks the 25th anniversary of the UD Botanic Gardens annual plant sale.

The event will be held at CANR’s Townsend Hall, located at 531 South College Ave., in Newark. Both admission and parking are free and the event is open to the public, rain or shine.

Ag Day is for everyone; however, for the safety of the live animal demonstrations, organizers ask that all pets be left at home.

Registration for exhibitors and vendors is now open and runs until March 27.

Registration is available on the Ag Day website.

The website also features additional information, announcements, and schedules, and will be updated as the event approaches.
