Chatham County invites residents to join us for our 4th annual Spring Ag Fest at the Chatham County Agriculture & Conference Center (CCACC) on Saturday, March 25, 2023, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The Spring Ag Fest is a celebration of Chatham County’s agriculture, forestry, and natural resources. The event will offer something for everyone: livestock arena events, demonstrations, food, and more.

Indoor and outdoor exhibitors and vendors will highlight local farms, farmers’ markets, sustainable agriculture, agricultural support and advocacy, agribusiness, beekeeping, livestock, forestry, green industry, wildlife, conservation, and much more. We will have FREE pony rides for kids sponsored by the Chatham County Farm Bureau! Visitors will get to meet Smokey Bear and chat with our local forest rangers.

Several food trucks will offer tasty options for lunch.

The event is free and open to the public. We encourage visitors to bring canned goods for our local food banks. Full details including an event schedule and a complete list of exhibitors will be released in early 2023.
