HISTORY OF SPOKANE AG EXPO & FARM FORUM
Since 1887, the AgriBusiness Council (formerly Ag Bureau) of Greater Spokane Inc has supported and promoted
agriculture across our region. Dedicated volunteers of this group hosted the first Farm Forum event in 1954 to provide educational seminars and tours to area farmers, ranchers and agribusiness professionals. The first Spokane Ag Expo was held in January 1978 and now ranks as one of the top farm shows in North America.
The Ag Expo Board of Directors and Farm Forum Committee exist to support, promote and advocate for agriculture in our region.
