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. 


We are currently accepting applications for the 2020 show. If you would like to be a vendor please download your form here. Or call the Dakota Broadcasting Studios at 605-725-5551.
