• The Ag Expo Center is A Bridge to … Stronger Roots

    The time is now. Are you in?

There’s a rich history of agriculture in St. Joseph.

It’s matched only by its potential to develop even stronger roots moving into the future. Through the Ag Expo Center, the agricultural industry gains a new foundation for the next generation of leaders, including:

  • A 6,000-seat arena for 4-H and FFA shows, as well as conventions and trade shows
  • Classrooms and other venues for training and mentoring in agriculture in a 28,000 square foot exposition center
  • Special events, demonstrations and concerts further the connection between the Ag Expo Center and area youth
  • Cultural celebrations that highlight contributions made to area agriculture by different groups

Let’s build a bridge … to economic development, education, entertainment and more.

The Ag Expo Center is a bridge. It’s a bridge to connect who we are as a region including our strong agricultural history, to all that we could be in the future. It’s a bridge connecting our rich legacy as a community to our strong potential for the coming generations.

A center for economic development in the agricultural technology field, and a place to maintain our foothold in the center of agricultural science growth.

A center for innovation for youth, so they have the experiences, skills and leadership to carry the region forward.

A center for tourism and positive regional interest, based around conventions, shows and concerts.

Let’s Build on a Legacy.

Since 2010, dedicated committee members and project supporters have carved out the research and plans for the Ag Expo Center. Based on this data and the inspiration of many voices, we are ready to move forward together and bring the project to completion. This work will honor our strong Midwestern roots and showcase our perfect position to be an economic leader in the future.

What's Next?

Today, we invite you to take part in this new chapter of the Ag Expo Center story. You’ll be seeing some changes as we move forward. Your shared belief in the project is a key to its success.
