An exciting highlight of this year's event is the annual bread fair, now in its 41st iteration. In conjunction with the wheat show, the bread fair offers a unique opportunity for over 1500 area 5th graders to immerse themselves in the art of bread-making. Participants will learn the intricacies of crafting bread, from mixing ingredients to the final bake. The hands-on experience allows these young learners to take home their freshly baked loaves and share the joy of their culinary creations with their families.

The National Hard Spring Wheat Show and the accompanying bread fair not only serve as platforms for education and information exchange but also contribute to the community by fostering a deeper connection between agriculture and the next generation. As we anticipate this enriching event, the agricultural community eagerly awaits the valuable insights and experiences that will unfold on February 1.

The event will be held at the Grand Williston Hotel. You can register for the meal HERE. Payment will be collected at the door.
