Ag Day 2021!

Friday, October 1, 2021 at 9:00am to 4:30pm

Ag Quad

Join us October 1st from 9am-4:30pm on the Ag Quad for Ag Day 2021! Ag Day is the annual outreach event hosted by Alpha Zeta Fraternity to share our passion for agriculture with the Cornell and greater Ithaca, NY communities. The proceeds from this event are donated to support Tompkins County 4-H and its mission to build the next generation of agriculture leaders. Our goal is to familiarize people with the importance of agriculture and its diverse roles in our local and global communities. 

Come visit tables and participate in activities that will teach visitors about new technologies and advancements in agriculture. Visit university departments such as the School of Integrated Plant Sciences, Cornell Hemp Sciences, Cornell Digital Agriculture, etc. and agriculture related clubs such as Cornell Composting, Hydroponics Club, Hortus Forum, a performance from the Cornell Marching Band, and many more! 

There will be farm animals including cows, chickens, and goats for the amusement of visitors and the children of faculty and community members. Come participate in our raffle to win a variety of prizes including a NY apple-themed basket, NY Dairy basket, a 50/50 cash prize, and many more! There will also be a professor potato sack race. Please nominate your favorite professors to compete using this form: 

All visitors and members of the Cornell community will wear face masks and follow Cornell COVID guidelines at the event. There will be QR codes posted around the Ag Quad to track all of the event visitors for contact tracing purposes.

Depending on COVID guidelines at the time of the event, we may have a food tent to sell prepackaged wraps, pasta, and potato salad as well as hand out free samples of NY state apples.
