Please join us for a drive-through awards ceremony! Everyone is invited to attend. Here are the details:
When: Sunday, August 16, 2020 from 9:00am to 11:00am. Gates open at 9 am – Ceremony begins at 9:30am followed by the drive-by award pick-up.
How: AgFest will have an in-car awards ceremony in the parking lot followed by a drive-by pick-up of awards. The event master of ceremonies will be on stage alone and broadcast about a 45-minute program announcing the events and awards earned by the exhibitors. The cars will exit the parking lot and either leave the property or drive past one of 6 tables to be handed their awards. Each table will be serviced by two volunteers (one at the table and the second handing the awards to the passing car). All volunteers will have access to sanitizer and wear face masks and gloves while maintaining 6 feet of distance from others.
Participants & Volunteers: Please park 6-feet apart (come in a pick-up if possible and plan to sit in the bed of the truck). Follow social distancing and mask mandate rules.
