College of Agriculture and Natural Resources announces date for annual Ag Day

Ag Day 2015 will be held April 25Ag Day, an annual tradition of the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR) at the University of Delaware, will be held on Saturday, April 25, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The theme of Ag Day 2015 is “Farm to Table.” The Food Bank of Delaware will be on hand to accept donations of non-perishable food items. There will also be a “Farm to Table” recipe contest. 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. 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. 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 Friday, March 20. 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. Photo by Danielle Quigley
