MACOMB, IL – Because of crowd size limitations due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 51st annual Western Illinois University Ag Mech Farm Expo, scheduled for March 5-6, has been canceled.

The annual show, acknowledged as the largest, student-run agriculture show in the country, attracts more than 150 vendors, and provides networking opportunities for students.

"We are disappointed to cancel the WIU Ag Mech Farm Expo for the second year in a row; however, due to the WIU COVID protocols, we are unable to host an event of this size for the public," said Ag Mech Club Co-Advisor Jana Knupp. "We appreciate our vendors being patient, as we tried to wait for the rules to change. We hope to see everyone again inside Western Hall in 2023."
