Welcome to Ag Progress Days!

We're pleased to have you as our guest and we hope the events on the grounds of the show and the content you'll find on this website will be educational and helpful to you. We are thrilled to connect again in person for the 2024 show, scheduled for Aug. 13-15. We are committed to our support of the agricultural community and to host a safe show experience for attendees, exhibitors and staff. 

The economy and weather events continue to present serious challenges to our agricultural producers, our food supply chains, our businesses, our livelihoods, and our health. As Pennsylvania's land-grant university, it is our mission to help our state's farmers, families, and communities navigate these challenges.

  • Along with Penn State Extension, we continue to provide opportunities to learn in a virtual format as well as feature Exhibitors at the show with an enhanced exhibitor profile from our Interactive Map. This is where you can connect with our commercial exhibitors to learn about the goods and services they offer and reach out before and during the show to company representatives.
  • We will continue to feature various live webinars, virtual tours of the research center, and viewable video presentations highlighting some of the latest research, educational programs, and best practices in agriculture, natural resources, health and nutrition, and other topics from our website and Facebook live events. We hope you enjoy this content, finding it interesting and valuable enough that you return often to explore the website to the fullest as a supplement to the in-person show.

We look forward to connecting in-person again at the Ag Progress Days show grounds, so don't forget to mark Aug. 13-15, 2024, on your calendar for next year's event!
