A springtime tradition is ready to return. Wisconsin Public Service (WPS) will welcome tens of thousands of farmers, exhibitors and visitors to its 61st WPS Farm Show March 28-30 on the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) grounds in Oshkosh.
The WPS Farm Show provides farmers with an annual, up-close look at the latest innovations and products that can help them improve their farms’ efficiency. 20,000 people from the Upper Midwest are expected to attend during the three-day event. This year’s show will feature nearly 400 exhibitors from across the United States and Canada, displaying large farm machinery, precision planting technology, robotic milking systems and hundreds of additional products.
Helping farmers in the heartland for six decades
WPS has hosted the WPS Farm Show for more than 60 years to support farmers throughout its service area. The springtime showcase connects farmers — from small family farms to large dairy operations — with exhibitors whose products can help farms of all sizes grow. It also allows WPS employees to meet with farmers and talk with them about using energy safely and efficiently on their farms.
Visitors to this year’s WPS Farm Show also can check out:
- The WPS Farm Show Food Tent, featuring dishes and treats prepared by several state nonprofit groups.
- A three-day silent auction benefitting the Wisconsin FFA Foundation (Hangar B).
- Kids’ tractor pull (March 29 at 12:30 p.m.)
- Free health screenings from University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh nursing students and Thedacare Rural Health Initiative.
The WPS Farm Show takes place 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 28 and 29, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. March 30. Admission is free. There is a $5 charge to park on the EAA grounds.
