The 2017 Bob Evans Farm Festival offers a wide range of entertainment, one-of-a-kind handmade arts and crafts, farm contests, delicious local food, children’s activities, demonstrations and musical performances.
In addition to the original Bob Evans Restaurant and food tent on site, the Bob Evans Farm Festival offers traditional fare including bean soup and corn bread, kettle corn, pies, apple dumplings, ice cream and Ohio-made cheeses and trail bologna, as well as other treats.
Kids will enjoy face painting, a hay bale maze, game tent, kiddie train rides, corn pile and more.
At various times, the “Pedal Tractor Pull” allows youth of various ages to participate in this traditional test of strength and determination.
Bob Evans has invited Farm Bureau to be a part of this year’s festival. Both Ohio Farm Bureau and Gallia County Farm Bureau will have displays.
Ohio Farm Bureau’s display will feature the very popular augmented reality sand box that has captured the imagination of kids and adults alike, where they can explore how changing topography and changing water levels impact the landscape.
Also on display will be the combine simulator and information about the Ohio Farm Bureau Health Benefit Plan. Farm Bureau members who show their membership card to a staff member at the tent will receive a $5 Bob Evans gift card (while supplies last).
At the Gallia County booth, stop by for the Bob Evans Collector Basket. It is $45 and supplies are limited. Advance orders are accepted. There also will be antique tractors.
Admission: $6 for adults; $4 for children (6-8); 5 and under are free.
