Farm City Day was started in 1955 by the Cooperative Extension Service and Kiwanis International. The Festival highlights the dependency of farm people and city people on each other for products and services essential to modern living. The Farm City program was designed to encourage the exchange of ideas and development of shared activities creating a feeling of mutual understanding and good will. In 1986 Farm City Day was moved to Jackson Park.
Whether you’re city folks or country folks, Farm City Day will fill your day with fun for the whole family.
