Farm Progress Show in Boone, Iowa cancelled in 2020 due to COVID-19


ST CHARLES, IL- This year's Farm Progress Show, which was to be in Boone, Iowa this September has been cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The group that manages the Farm Progress Show is also cancelling another very large agricultural show, Husker Harvest Days in Grand Island, Nebraska.

Show management had confirmed earlier that the two shows would be able to continue, with a number of COVID-19 precautions, but say recent events have prompted organizers to go ahead and call off the events for this year, and start planning for 2021.

Organizers say the agricultural shows attract multi-generational guests from across the U.S. and the world, and the decision was cancel the events this year, to protect the safety for all of the attendees.
