Women in Agriculture Conference
The Annual RI Women in Agriculture Conference at URI's Main Campus celebrates Rhode Island's farmers and agricultural professionals. The success of this conference is largely due to the many talented presenters who participate. It is Rhode Island's largest agricultural conference, bringing together over 200 farmers, growers, producers, agricultural professionals, and extension and university educators for workshops, networking sessions and meals. The Conference will share information on many aspects of farming, geared around issues for women. For more information or to register, click here.

The Washington County Fair
Owned and operated by the volunteers of the Washington County Pomona Grange, the Washington County Fair, a non-profit organization, has been a great New England tradition for the past 48 years! The Fair is Rhode Island's largest agricultural event. One of the biggest draws to the Fair is today's Country Music Stars!
The Fair runs for five days (Wednesday - Sunday), taking place August 13 - 17, 2014. Admission includes access to all daily concerts, special acts and events, the giant midway and kiddy land area (all ride tickets and games separate), all agricultural events and shows, exhibits and displays, tractor and horse pulls, the farm museum, and much, much more!
The Fair features the Main Stage pine grove where you can relax and enjoy some of music's hottest acts. The Midway is full of the rides you look forward too every year, as well as some new additions!
To keep up with the exciting announcements related to the 48th Washington County Fair in the coming months, follow us on Facebook! We are looking forward to seeing you in August!
