New Mexico Department of Agriculture

Agriculture Day returns to NMSU’s Aggie Memorial Stadium
Thursday, August 28, 3-6 p.m.

Join us for family fun and to get a taste of New Mexico foods — all while learning about New Mexico farming and ranching in a kid-friendly environment.

Be sure to print and clip the coupons for a free side of New Mexico green chile — the perfect accompaniment to nachos, a cheeseburger, or any other game snack you’ll find at the concessions stands!

If you’re planning to attend as an exhibitor, you’ll need to register by the new deadline of Thursday, July 17.
