Ag Day, an annual tradition of the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR) at the University of Delaware, will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, April 30.

The theme of Ag Day 2016 is “SustainAGbility: Doing What Nature Would Do.”

Members of the campus community and the surrounding community are encouraged to join the college for a day filled with music, exhibitors, great food and fun 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, plant sales, and much more.

At this year’s Ag Day, the UDairy Creamery will also be celebrating its fifth birthday.

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

The Food Bank of Delaware will also be on hand accepting donations of non-perishable food items.

Ag Day is family friendly, 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 21. 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.
